Protecting species in the Wash

Aubrey Mathews, a master's student from the University of Exeter, has been awarded an OSF grant to map risks to endangered species in the Wash brown shrimp fishery.

She said: “The ocean is a massive part of our planet, yet it remains understudied and underprotected... this is an excellent opportunity for me to make a difference for both the fishery and marine ecosystems.”
