The People and the Ocean Knowledge and Action Hub is led by Celine Germond-Duret and gathers expertise on the wide range of connections that exist between people and the coastal and marine environment. The hub is interdisciplinary and values a diversity of insights, from social sciences to arts and humanities and from economics to law. It aims at sharing academic knowledge and fostering dialogue with private and public stakeholders. Expertise includes (but is not limited to): justice and the blue economy; sense of place; fisheries and social responses to fish farming; ports as novel hubs of ocean governance; blue avian ecologies.

  • Mapping Blue Business

    With an initial focus on Lancashire, UK, this project aims to investigate place-based blue economies.

  • Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship

    This project, led by the Stockholm Resilience Centre, has identified and works in partnership with ‘keystone actors’ in the seafood industry. In this way it has developed a unique interaction between researchers and nine of the world's largest seafood companies.
