Energy and food security

In this theme we provide the evidence base to support the role of marine-related industries in generating sustainable and sufficient energy and food. We focus on the effects of nuclear, wind, tidal and wave energy generation on the environment and interactions between energy generation and other uses of the sea. We assess the sufficiency, sustainability and safety of food from fisheries and aquaculture and the resilience and ethical performance the food system. We develop and test methods for the management of fisheries and aquaculture to meet environmental, social and economic objectives.
