The objectives of the SWME conferences developed by the delegates are:
To record observation on ecological and oceanographic events of the previous year that have affected the South West marine ecosystems and to make the linkages between environmental and biological phenomena.
To promote research studies that focus on the ecology of marine species, planktonic, benthic and ‘mobile’ species (fish, birds, mammals, turtles) and the ecosystem that supports them.
To encourage strong relationships between policy makers and scientists; to promote science and the evidence base that underpins management of human activities in the coastal and marine environment with a view to supporting and promoting the health of south west’s marine ecosystems.
To highlight marine education and outreach programmes in the South West. To support the development of new programmes that promote marine management and make use of marine science. To promote good practice in environmental education, interpretation, signage and outreach.
