organisation profile

Cefas scientists are the UK Government’s marine and freshwater science experts collecting, managing and interpreting data on the aquatic environment, biodiversity and fisheries. Cefas offers the broadest range of applied marine and freshwater science in the UK. Commencing in 1902 as a small fisheries laboratory in Lowestoft, UK, Cefas currently employs over 500 staff between sites in Lowestoft and Weymouth, and small port-based offices in Scarborough, Hayle and Plymouth on a diverse remit including:
Marine monitoring, Ocean and ocean processes, Ecosystem understanding, Marine biodiversity, Aquatic animal health, Emergency response, Climate change, Assessment and advice, Sustainable fisheries, Food safety and
Technology and data.
Overseas, Cefas scientists work in Commonwealth countries, UK Overseas Territories, South East Asia and the Middle East and in 2014 Cefas established a permanent base in the Middle East by opening an office in Kuwait, and since opened an office in Oman.
Cefas also operates an ocean-going Research Vessel, Cefas Endeavour.
