MASTS Workshop Summary Report

| September 9, 2013

mastsThe purpose of the workshop was to highlight the current elasmobranch research taking place in Scottish waters and to see if a collaborative approach might be beneficial in driving future research forwards. The workshop attracted 31 participants from a wide range of backgrounds.

The workshop and session was opened by the Chair, Prof. Teresa Fernandes, who provided an overview of MASTS, highlighting areas (such as community projects) that might benefit an elasmobranch group. This followed with 10 excellent presentations on current elasmobranch work from: Ali Hood (UK Shark trust), Ian Burrett (Scottish Sea Angling Conservation Network), Francis Neat (Marine Scotland), Vicki Bendall (CEFAS), Suz Henderson (SNH), Lea-Anne Henry (Heriot Watt), Les Noble, Lili Lieber, James Thorburn (all Aberdeen University) and Mark Hind (Sealife).
