Biogeography based optimization (BBO) has recently gain interest of researchers due to its efficiency and existence of very few parameters. The BBO is inspired by geographical distribution of species within islands. However, BBO has shown its wide applicability to various engineering optimization problems, the original version of BBO sometimes does not perform up to the mark. Poor balance of exploration and exploitation is the reason behind it. Migration, mutation and elitism are three operators in BBO. Migration operator is responsible for the information sharing among candidate solutions (islands). In this way, the migration operator plays an important role for the design of an efficient BBO. This paper proposes a new migration operator in BBO. The so obtained BBO shows better diversified search process and hence finds solutions more accurately with high convergence rate. The BBO with new migration operator is tested over 20 test problems. Results are compared with that of original BBO and Blended BBO. The comparison which is based on efficiency, reliability and accuracy shows that proposed migration operator is competitive to the present one.
