Falmouth Harbour Commission has liaised with Falmouth Marine School in order to sponsor a set of student projects. These projects are to give the Harbour Commission an overview of the environmental habitats in and around the Fal estuary. This area has enormous potential as a research site and for fieldwork trips, with a number of species and coastal processes students are unable to observe easily without professional links e.g. Harbour Pilot Boats, in the coastal zone surrounding Falmouth. The scope for these projects is large and will involve the Cornwall Wildlife Trust/Marine Biological Association/Environment Agency/ Natural England/Pendennis Castle/ A+P/Pendennis Shipyard/Maritime Museum/MCA Coastguard/Fal and Helford SAC and St Mawes Ferries. The stakeholders want to make sure the research is suitable for their needs i.e. Reports, posters, activities etc. This is a significant change from the standard dissertation format but is much more suitable for preparing them for the workplace and will give the students a range of unique opportunities for work placements and experience with employers/commissioners.
