Research conducted by the MARINA Lab relates to interactions between humans and marine and freshwater resources and services. Our work generally falls into four research themes:


Sea Change

How are coastal and riparian communities, environments and economies affected by and adapting to a changing world?

Sea Food

How do fisheries and aquaculture support human nutrition and health?


Sea People

Enriching ‘human dimensions’ research in coupled human-natural systems.

Oceans Apart

Understanding competing values and visions for fisheries and aquaculture development and marine conservation.
