U.K. Report Examines the Future of the Sea

The U.K.’s Government Office for Science released its Future of the Sea final report today. The document addresses major impacts on the sea including governance, environmental issues, marine resources and economic potential of the sea.

The Foresight project that produced the report also created a series of evidence reviews on specific topics including cybersecurity, shipping trends, ocean acidification, aquaculture and marine biodiversity, among others.

To examine the future of the industry, the project also conducted interviews with 11 marine companies to infer the industry’s challenges into the future. The interviews are summarized in the report, “Industry perspectives on emerging technology”.
