"Achieving Seas Full of Life: An Introduction to
MCS with a focus on sustainable seafood"


Sam Stone

Head of Fisheries and Aquaculture
Marine Conservation Society

"UK seas are vital to the fabric of our lives - uninhabited by over 8,000 marine species, providing a wealth of resources from fish and shellfish to marine renewable energy as well as a place of leisure, giving joy to millions of visitors every year and supporting coastal economies. But UK seas are also amongst the most heavily used in the world and are under threat."

NB: This is a different talk from the one in the new programme as the original speaker is recuperating from surgery.
