Join us at the Royal Society for the Marine Ecosystems Research Programme Stakeholder Symposium

www.marine-ecosystems.org.uk

Human activities and environmental change are changing the structure and functioning of marine ecosystems. The Marine Ecosystem Research Programme (MERP) was designed to improve our understanding of the processes and dynamics of marine food webs, our ability to model change, and our capability to project how potential ecosystem changes may affect the sustainable delivery of crucial ecosystem services. As a result MERP has significantly increased understanding of the consequences of changes in marine ecosystems for the services they deliver to the wider marine environment and society.

Throughout the 4-year programme MERP has engaged actively with stakeholders including relevant marine policy formers, managers, regulators, NGOs, and industry. As the current phase of our work comes to an end in May 2018 we want to share with stakeholders across the UK how the advances made in this extensive research programme can support the broad management and sustainable use of the UK's marine environment.

This meeting will focus on 4 key themes, which will include short presentations followed by panel discussion sessions:

More understanding – The MERP approach to generating scientific evidence from knowledge, data and tools

Fishing and marine ecosystems – Addressing the different facets of fishing in the marine ecosystem using the MERP approach for evidence generation

Marine top predators, people and policy – Generating evidence for assessing the status of, and risks to, marine ecosystems

MERP, marine space and management – Using information of what is where, when and why to support evidence-based decision-making

The MERP community includes scientists from across the UK:

  • Plymouth Marine Laboratory
  • Glasgow University
  • Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science
  • Bangor University
  • Sheffield University
  • University of Strathclyde
  • Queen Mary, University of London
  • Queens University, Belfast
  • Centre for Ecology and Hydrology
  • Scottish Association for Marine Science
  • Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science
  • National Oceanography Centre
