This project is developing the environmental evidence base for the following sectors:

  • tidal stream energy
  • wave energy
  • aquaculture

The project focuses on the Welsh marine area and will help to inform marine planning in Wales.

We have identified these three sectors as a priority for this project as:

  • they are of strategic importance
  • they lack an accessible, applied, fit for purpose and structured in-depth evidence base
  • the collation and interpretation of in-depth datasets and new evidence is achievable

This project has received funding through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund. This is funded by the European Union and Welsh Government.
