Tethra have commissioned the development of what we call the ‘Marine Planning Crew’. This team of 4 individuals will be selected to support the true integration of fisheries and aquaculture with Offshore Renewable Energy. This team works separately to the Tethra portfolio but directly with impacted industries and local communities. Their job is to carry out marine planning exercises with interested stakeholders of fisheries and aquaculture to support the goal of increased biodiversity and productivity of the marine space. Their skills are complementary to this ambition and spread across fisheries, aquaculture development and commercialisation, marine planning, communications and stakeholder engagement as well as GIS and technology. Their skills are required to ensure that the unique and valued knowledge of the local fisheries and aquaculture businesses and operators are captured, maximised and integrated into early-stage planning in order to create opportunities for stakeholders, new businesses in aquaculture and to empower the communities working with the Tethra portfolio.
