Marine Science and Technology
Activity within the department is divided into six sections: Aquaculture Development, Fisheries Science, Marine Spatial Planning, Marine Policy and Advice and Marine Development, although many staff have input into more than one section due to the multidisciplinary approach that is applied to many of our projects.
We conduct applied research and provide training and advice to marine-based industries and other stakeholders within Shetland, wider Scotland and beyond. Our aim is to add positively to the viability of industry sectors, to train and educate people of all ages and backgrounds, and to help integrate people and the marine environment.
