Welcome to Mersea Consulting

 Our Mission

 Our Mission is to improve the marine realm through completing scientific research on marine fisheries and ecology, focusing on marine conservation with the aim of improving gaps in policy. Due to our wide range of expertise, and collaborators spanning the globe, we can contribute to many different causes and projects. We provide a wide range of services such as conducting underwater research on biodiversity, benthic macrofauna, fish & invasive species, elasmobranchs and vulnerable species. We also conduct fisher interviews, fisheries assessments, data analyses, scientific writing and native English editing for peer review.
