Summary/Abstract: During the directorate of Professor Sergiu Cărăuşu, the Marine Zoological Station „Prof. Dr. Ioan Borcea” from Agigea entered the possession of its first marine research boat „Emil Racoviţă”, of small tonnage and coastal use, in 1960. At the initiative and following the sustained efforts of Professor Ionel Miron, „Alexandru I.

The vessel was removed from service and scrapped in 2000.
