Marine Energy Research Symposium March 2019

Conference highlighting current and future opportunities for marine renewables in Scotland.

In March 2019, Marine Scotland held its 2nd Scottish Marine Energy Research (ScotMER) symposium. The symposium showcased recent research and new methods being developed to understand the potential interactions between marine mammals and renewable energy developments, and covered topics such as noise, strategic monitoring, collision risk, and modelling population level consequences of disturbance.
