About us

Sea Trust Wales is a charity working to better understand and help protect local marine wildlife, and to raise awareness in the local community. We aim to inspire people to care about their local marine wildlife by opening their eyes to the stunning diversity of wildlife around the Welsh coast and engaging them in its protection.

Projects & Research

The Sea Trust is currently running three main projects: the  Porpoise photo-ID project, where images of individual porpoise are used to study their population and ecology; Recycle Mor, which recycles end of the line fishing gear into useful everyday products; and FINtastic Fauna which trains volunteers to become citizen scientists and record marine wildlife around the Pembrokeshire coast as well as raises awareness around the community about the wildlife they have on their doorstep.

Sea Môr Aquarium

Our Sea Môr Aquarium in the Ocean Lab, Goodwick, houses local species in tanks that emulate a variety of marine ecosystems, including a Harbour tank, Rock Pool tank and deep sea Monsters tank, giving visitors a chance to glimpse life beneath the waves in the Irish sea. This is a catch and release aquarium: all animals in the aquarium are temporary residents and are returned safely to the sea. We work in partnership with local fishermen and divers to bring you a real taste of Welsh marine wildlife and ecosystems.
