My name is Kirsty Dick, and I am currently studying for an MSc at the University of Edinburgh. For my dissertation I am exploring the potential for increased scientific support and ocean observation networks among fishing and tourism vessels in the Southern Ocean.
As part of my research, I am conducting a short online survey which aims to establish the current challenges and opportunities around increasing the scope and scale of voluntary observing and scientific support networks among commercial vessels, with a view to developing a blue print of how to expand this important contribution to Southern Ocean science.
If you have already completed an interview with me, there is no need to fill out this questionnaire in addition.
Many thanks for your time,
MSc Marine Systems and Policy, University of Edinburgh
