The North Sea Advisory Council are stakeholders in a number of scientific projects including Discardless, Mareframe and MYFISH. The members of the NSAC are positive about ongoing involvement and participation in science projects as it is a key aim of the organisation to increase links with scientists in order to improve understanding and communication between the fishing industry and the scientific community.
NSAC welcomes approaches to become involved in the development of projects as stakeholders with input to the planning and scoping of project proposals. NSAC members are less likely to approve involvement in projects that have already been approved and are seeking AC representation in order to gain project approval.
If you are seeking project partners and you are beginning to scope your project please contact the NSAC secretariat to discuss your project and possible links to NSAC.
