Science plans and strategies
White papers and presentations
The National Marine Science Plan 2015–2025 drew on a series of white papers developed by working groups in the marine science community. As part of this process, the papers were presented and discussed at the National Marine Science Symposium in 2014.
These papers were based on the challenges and opportunities identified by Marine Nation 2025.
