Marine Spatial Planning in Shetland

Marine spatial planning is a process which manages human activity in the marine environment to achieve social, ecological, and economic objectives. At Shetland UHI we have expertise in using the ecosystem approach to engage with the general public and public/private organisations in the management of the marine environment. Our multi-disciplinary research explores how data and knowledge can be used to underpin policies and decisions making.
