For the past year, Hub’s deep-sea researchers have been forced to be creative with their time and explore different opportunities for research and collaboration due to the restrictions posed by the global pandemic.
Our research in Namibia seeks to learn from people who rely on the ocean, in order to understand the pressing challenges facing marine ecosystems and ensure that the blue economy supports sustainable ‘blue’ communities.
The Hub researchers are exploring some of the deep-sea ecosystems in the South Atlantic, and connecting researchers working in this region, so that we can better understand their value and ensure sustainable use for generations to come.
The One Ocean Hub brings together five interconnected research programmes to support more integrated, evidence-based and inclusive responses to the multiple threats facing the ocean. Threats that include plastics and climate change.
The One Ocean Hub aims to transform our response to the urgent challenges facing our ocean. Its research seeks to bridge current disconnections in law, science and policy and integrate governance frameworks to balance multiple ocean uses with conservation.
