MCS is well known by the media as a trusted source of news and information on marine matters. The degree of coverage given to our major projects and campaigns - sustainable seafood, clean beaches and seas, and protection for sea wildlife - is testament to our clear and focussed communications, all based on sound science. We've featured in many national newspapers and TV news broadcasts, helped make documentaries for Panorama and Channel Four's Fish Fight, and even made the occasional appearance on Countdown and The Archers!
