Research Manager and Director
SeaScope Fisheries Research Ltd.
Grant Course is focused on developing and using EM technology to help promote its use in fisheries research and compliance in the United Kingdom. He has worked in fisheries research since 1993 and specialised in discard monitoring programmes. Initially this was through designing and managing the UK at sea DCF Observer programme with Cefas, but more recently through the English Catch Quota Trials utilising Electronic Monitoring and CCTV. In 2014, he left government and set up SeaScope. SeaScope has been instrumental in trialling EM on small inshore shellfish vessels in Scotland and is working closely with WWF (UK) to help inform government of the benefits of EM and promote its use in managing fisheries.
