In the South West, Marine Protected Areas, renewable energy installations and aquaculture present diverse challenges for coastal ecosystems. By employing a range of techniques including custom towed and baited HD video systems and benthic grabs we can investigate the effects of these developments on the ecosystem.
Come along and find out how the Marine Institute’s research is contributing to our understanding of how sustainable development and conservation in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall are affecting local coastal ecosystems.
