With the world's oceans under increasing pressure from acidification, warming, habitat destruction, pollution and unsustainable fishing practices, the topic of marine protection has been a prominent environmental focus in 2018.
This meeting, organised by the Institution of Environmental Sciences, addresses and explores the key themes raised by their journal environmental SCIENTIST (published this month) which focuses on 'Deeper than Plastic: Issues for the marine environment'. The journal explores potential threats and opportunities for marine environments, as well as new science methodologies and innovative technologies that may reverse current negative impacts on the oceans.
The event welcomes presentations from a breadth of eminent speakers in marine science, followed by a collaborative and friendly group discussion. Networking opportunities are available before and after the meeting.
The meeting will be of interest to marine scientists, researchers and academics, University staff and students, IES members, local and regional government officials, consultants, NGOs, professional bodies, marine engineers and manufacturers, and expert practitioners.
