  Lowering reuse costs by reducing fouling on immersed structures - National Decommissioning Centre
  Prof M Jaspars, Prof F Kuepper
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Fouling on marine immersed structures is a multi-billion pound issue for the offshore industry, requiring mechanical removal of foulants.
  Acoustic detection & characterisation of cod in the north east Atlantic.
  Dr P Fernandes, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
After decades of overexploitation in the 20th century, most fish stocks in the North east Atlantic are now sustainably fished and showing strong signs of recovery (Fernandes and Cook, 2013).
  Jurassic Lagoon: learning from the ancestors of the amazing mussels - QUADRAT
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mussels (bivalves of the family Mytilidae) are incredible animals with a long fossil history. For millions of years, populations of mussels have been able to withstand pounding waves by attaching themselves to the seafloor using threads that are one of the strongest materials found in nature.
  Monitoring marine plankton biodiversity and community dynamics using third-generation DNA metabarcoding.
  Dr A Douglas, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Marine plankton respond rapidly to environmental change associated with climate change and also emissions of waste and pollutants, which may cause significant losses in biodiversity and impact ecosystem resilience.
  Sea-level change and conservation, past, present and future - QUADRAT
  Dr J Neilson, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Strangford Lough in Northern Ireland is a unique marine water body, a large deep inland sea connected to the open ocean by a narrow channel that creates tidal currents of speeds up to 9 knots.
  Speciation Dynamics in Wallacea: Implications for Conservation on Sulawesi.
  Dr G Bocedi, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Wallacea has a unique fauna and flora characterised by incredibly high levels of biodiversity and endemism, and which is threatened by changing land use, exploitation and climate change.
  The socioecological drivers of tourist decisions and their influence on wildlife tourism sustainability
  Dr D Lusseau, Dr S Cerroni
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
An ever-increasing number of people use nature for recreation and tourism across all ecoregions. Those activities now threaten the conservation of 5930 species and marine coastal regions are particularly affected (Lusseau & Mancini 2018).
  Towards integrated adaptive management of an endangered elasmobranch in the North East Atlantic.
  Dr C S Jones, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Increasing use is made of marine protected areas (MPAs) to locally manage and conserve marine biodiversity. Although highly mobile, with complex temporal and spatial movement patterns, many endangered elasmobranchs show site association to critical habitats at important life history stages.
  Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply.
  Assessing the impacts of oil and gas decommissioning on population connectivity and community structure of native and invasive marine invertebrates using next-generation DNA technology - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr A Douglas, Prof S Piertney
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Oil and gas infrastructure represent an important network of hard substrates that facilitates the stepping stone migration of both native and non-native marine invasive species.
