ENVIRONMENTAL SURVEY WORKSHOP

Wallace Building, Swansea University, 12th February 2013


After a series of four successful Environmental Survey workshops for boat owners, SEACAMS is holding another one-day workshop on Tuesday 12th February.

The aim of the workshop is to give boat owners the opportunity to learn about the principles and practices of environmental surveys.  By conveying how boat owners can make use of their vessels for environmental survey work and how best to market their services, SEACAMS hopes to aid these local businesses to gain access to potential work available. Topics covered include:

  • Marine and coastal surveys explained – different survey approaches and methodology.
  • What is the market base, boat and equipment needs for a successful survey?
  • Legal requirements for a boat survey
  • Skippering a Research Vessel
  • Marketing opportunities – how to ‘sell’ your business
  • Survey scenario and equipment demonstration – on board the RV Noctiluca

Following suggestions from previous workshop participants, SEACAMS is creating a new database of vessels available for charter in Wales. This database will aim to link charter boats with consultancies and survey companies and thereby assist companies to find the appropriate boat in the survey location. All participants of the workshop will have the opportunity to add their boat specifications to the database. 

SEACAMS has linked with APT Bioscience project so that the one day business workshop is followed by a two day training course. Consolidate your learning and gain accreditation from Swansea University by continuing with the Marine Ecological Surveys course on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th February 2013.
