Our partnership

The Sussex Kelp Recovery Project (SKRP) is a partnership of organisations working together to champion, study and facilitate the recovery of Sussex kelp and other essential fish habitats, through progressive, coherent and collaborative action.​ 

About the SKRP partnership:

  • Formed in 2021 after the Sussex Nearshore Trawling Byelaw was introduced

  • Made up of seven cross-sector organisations 

  • Each partner brings their own unique skills, experience and focus. 

  • There is no lead organisation; partners work together to set the SKRP vision and strategy

Sussex Kelp Recovery Project partners.

Several organisations support delivery of SKRP aims, research and outreach including: 

Big Wave Productions, University of Portsmouth, University of Sussex, Marine Conservation Society and Sussex Underwater.​ 

SKRP Network

SKRP also engages a wider community of over 50 organisations and groups who support the recovery of Sussex kelp and who collectively form the SKRP Network. This community also includes local citizen scientists who help collect essential data.
