Cefas @ First Light

First Light partners, Cefas, are the Government’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.

They are experts in marine and freshwater science; helping to keep our seas, oceans and rivers healthy and productive and our seafood safe and sustainable. They are passionate about what they do because their work helps tackle the serious global problems of climate change, marine litter, over-fishing and pollution.

Cefas’ origins date back to 1902, when a small fisheries laboratory was established in Lowestoft. We are proud of our history and Lowestoft heritage. First Light Festival is a brilliant opportunity to share our work and commitment to making a difference. We’re sorry, we can’t meet you in the science dome this year, but we’re delighted to be able to bring some of our science to you.

We hope you enjoy this series of presentations and look forward to seeing you in person next year! (Cefas)
