3rd Marine Research Symposium – Field Studies Council in Pembrokeshire

Dale Fort FSC Centre is running its 3rd Marine Research Symposium on 21st March 2015. Please see the following initial invitation and call for papers:

Dale Fort Field Centre, is one of 17 Field Centres run by the Field Studies Council. It first opened its doors in 1947 becoming the UK’s, and probably the world’s, first Marine-based Field Centre. Our sister Field Centre at Orielton has also been delivering marine based field studies since 1963.

The FSC in Pembrokeshire is hosting its third marine research symposium on 21st March 2015, which will be an opportunity to show case marine and coastal ecological research, monitoring, surveys and conservation initiatives.

The Symposium will consist of a series of papers (delivered as presentations or posters) on past and current work being carried out in and around Pembrokeshire, and further afield.

There will also be a short field excursion to a local shore.

The Symposium is open to anyone from students or HE staff currently working in marine research, to conservations and rangers and to interested naturalists or members of the public.

We are currently asking for offers from people to give presentations or posters. The presentations would be about 30 minutes long. They can be on any theme related to the marine environment, either local to Pembrokeshire or further a field, or they could be on an interesting conservation project (either past, current or planned). We are also interested in any one who might be keen to deliver a longer (one hour) key note speech on a current marine environmental issue.


The Symposium attendance = £10 (which includes light refreshments and a buffet lunch). This fee is waived for people giving presentations/posters.

There will also be an evening meal for those who are able to stay (£5).

We can also offer B&B accommodation at the Field Centre for those travelling from further afield.
