This year, Sea Scotland is sponsored by the following organisations:
The Marine Alliance for Science and Technology Scotland (MASTS) is a consortium of organisations engaged in marine science and represents the majority of Scotland’s marine research capacity. MASTS provides an academic platform and knowledge base for marine governance and commerce by contributing to the Scottish Marine Science Strategy. This Strategy will help to deliver ‘Clean, healthy, safe, productive, biologically diverse marine and coastal environments, managed to meet the need of people and nature.’ Within MASTS, the Marine Planning and Governance Forum facilitates interaction between Marine Scotland, planning authorities, academics and a broad range of marine stakeholders to strategically develop applied and interdisciplinary research essential to enable evidence based governance for sustainable management of our seas.
WWF is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. Our mission is to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together. We have long supported ecosystem based marine planning around the world as a way to promote environmental protection and sustainable provision of important ecosystem goods and services, by helping to more clearly identify the most efficient, effective, and equitable way to plan and manage the use of our seas and coasts.
