The South West Marine Fest

We invite you to join us at the South West Marine Fest Conference. This is an annual conference taking place every May/June half-term. 

We are passionate about the marine environment, especially in our local area, the southwest of England. This is a recurring annual event that celebrates marine life from the region and beyond.

The day will be filled with presentations, discussions and networking opportunities, and will be aimed at those who work in the marine/conservation sector, students, early career researchers, and anyone with a passion for the marine environment!

Light refreshments will be provided, but to keep ticket prices low, this is a 'bring your own lunch' event. We challenge you to go plastic-free!

This event must be attended in person, however, we can guarantee full refunds if we must cancel due to the Coronavirus. Click here to buy your tickets.


Join us for this year's conference at Brixham Laboratory.

You can see our growing schedule of presentations below.
