OUR WORK

 

CFF provides a comprehensive portfolio of scientific research and technology development services to support fishing, farming, aquaculture and renewable energy in our region.  The resulting data has been crucial for developing our understanding of benthic habitats and marine life, and our gear modifications have been incorporated into current regulations. Our research also aids in the protection of endangered species and the development of sustainable aquaculture and agriculture practices.
