Establishing a strategic policy and regulatory research agenda is paramount to develop appropriate frameworks that are fit for purpose and provide confidence for the aquaculture and renewable energy sectors to operate. By drawing on a systematic literature review, survey and focus group with BECRC stakeholders (industry, research providers and government), this project will develop a coordinated and staged research plan based on these sectors’ short-, medium- and long-term needs and priorities.
