We have formed a strategic alliance with CEFAS to share knowledge and expertise.

Working with CEFAS

The University of Exeter has worked with the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) on a number of environmental research projects.

The organisations have formed a strategic alliance to support lecturing opportunities, student placements and pursue joint research projects.

Marine resource management

CEFAS and the University have helped to sustainably manage the seas’ resources by working with a consortium of British and French partners.

The CHannel integrated Approach for marine Resource Management (CHARM) project provided information on the status of the English Channel and North Sea’s ecosystems to policy makers.

The project produced a number of reports based on 17 action areas, ranging from database development to advising legislation.

Funding tomorrow’s researchers

The University recently secured funding from a Natural Environment Research Council GW4+ Doctoral Training Partnership.

CEFAS is jointly supervising studentships as part of the award, covering topics including:

  • Improving fish stock management through the use of genetic data.
  • The impact of climate change on fisheries.
  • The effects of epigenetics on reproduction in fish.
