Underpinning all Cefas services is a firm foundation in high quality applied science.
We provide innovative solutions for the aquatic environment, biodiversity and food security. Our investment strategy has identified interdependent science and evidence challenges that span the monitoring, assessment and advisory work that Cefas undertakes. It is in these areas that we expect greatest future demand for our services.
This approach is fostered through our extensive network of partners in the academic and government science community, with whom we collaborate extensively.
Cefas has a significant impact on the science community through its published work, regularly producing over 170 peer-reviewed papers in the scientific literature. Based on citations in science journals, Cefas is the leading European laboratory in projects covering Marine and Freshwater Biology and Fisheries. At any one time we have over 85 PhD students with about 30 UK universities, and strong links with academic institutions in Europe and in Kuwait, Qatar and Singapore. We have an influential advisory role in Europe which is critical to UK government delivery of its regulatory obligations, and in areas of fisheries and water quality our science is respected globally.
