Slideshow of images for Marine Networks for Business

To help develop marine businesses within Wales and to provide an additional and useful resource for past and present students of Bangor University’s School of Ocean Sciences, the School of Ocean Sciences Association (SOSA) has set up networks with links to experts who can provide technical advice and information on career development and training. Please contact the mentor below with any questions you may have.

The company is also an associate of the Bridge Marine Science Group. http://www.bridgemarinescience.com/

Since the start of Marine Ecological Solutions Liz has been based in North Wales and had varied and interesting projects pass over her desk. Summers are typically filled with field work, whilst the winters are spent on shore based surveys, writing up reports and providing marine policy support.  Liz is also the North Wales Seasearch co-ordinator (www.seasearch.org.uk), encouraging recreational divers to ‘dive into conservation’ by training them to undertake marine habitat and species surveys around the UK.
