What is TMA BlueTech?

TMA BlueTech is the member-based organizer of a leading BlueTech cluster in the U.S. and one of the largest in the world. We believe that organized, regional BlueTech clusters (“Think global, act regional”) are the best way to explore and protect ocean and water resources.  BlueTech companies create the technology to understand problems and develop solutions to address them.
