We carry out a range of applied research and development projects in subjects relevant to the fishing and aquaculture industries, marine spatial planning and the marine environment in general.

The Centre collaborates closely with maritime industries and other interested parties to answer key questions, and to develop knowledge, technology or best practice, through applied research and development projects. These projects take advantage of the Centre's location, facilities, expertise and close links with maritime industries.

The Centre can also carry out research, survey and other services on a contract or consultancy basis.
