The Marine Evidence activities of the MBA deliver marine evidence and information resources to support marine policy and conservation science. The MBA has provided scientific advice and evidence since its inception in 1884. Marine ecosystems have high conservation and commercial value for the UK and form a significant part of the nation’s identity. Increased awareness and understanding of human-induced climate change over the past decade by governments and the general public has seen it established as a high priority concern on the political agenda. Scientific information on the impact of warming temperatures and ocean acidification within marine systems is emerging primarily from long-term observations of marine biological and environmental data.
Marine Evidence activities are coordinated across the organisation so that the varied expertise of the MBA can be tailored to deliver contract and grant-aided research services to interpret science and provide advice and evidence for UK/EU government agencies, industry, NGOs and other stakeholders.
For further information on the contract research and other services we provide, please refer to our contract services page or contact the Marine Evidence Coordinator Dr Harvey Tyler-Walters (email:firstname.lastname@example.org; tel. 01752 63 33 55).
