The ocean and seas remain the least developed regions on Earth. This provides us with opportunities as well as challenges and gives us with a new frontier for development and investment. PML scientists are working to unlock this blue economy, and realise the potential of the ocean and seas by supporting sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors. This includes aquaculture, coastal tourism, biotechnology, energy and seabed industries, with a strong emphasis on eco-innovation.
