“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

Marie Curie

Scientific Research is an essential part of what we do. Science provides the factual evidence you need to develop policy and identify solutions to many of the issues facing the oceans.  As well as conducting our own research projects we also support numerous other scientific research studies around the world that can help make a contribution to our knowledge and ultimately help towards protecting the ocean for future generations.
