SWME Conference 2024

Organised by South West Marine Ecosystems (SWME)

Last week, representatives from across Devon met at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory to report on the state of south-west seas in 2023. The aim was to build relationships between leading stakeholders within the county and to lead discussions on the interactions between key thematic topics, such as fisheries and marine planning and development.

Our DMF coordinator, Steph Harper-Chung, gave a presentation on Water Quality.
