This includes:</p><p> </p><p>The UK Ocean Acidification research programme (UKOA), which DEFRA contributed towards, and which investigated the threats of ocean acidification through experimental studies and modelling for several finfish and shellfish species.</p><p> </p><p>We commissioned the ‘Placing Ocean Acidification in a wider Fisheries Context’ (PLACID) project which has included studies on commercially important shellfish and finfish. We also commissioned a study on Impacts from Climate Change and Ocean Acidification on Fisheries and Marine Biodiversity. Most recently our contribution to the Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry programme further extends the field work of UKOA and PLACID. Further information on the research we commission is available of the Defra Science Search website.</p><p> </p><p>The UK Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership provides co-ordinated information on threats and research and has included specific report cards on key shellfish and finfish species, as well as ocean acidification.</p><p> </p><p>We also recognise the importance of global research collaboration and have recently supported the establishment of a North East Atlantic Ocean Acidification Hub to co-ordinate and share data, as well as our continued work with the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment (OSPAR) Ocean Acidification group.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>In 2008 the Competent Authority (CA) published the containment policy, a framework for upgrading existing fuel sites so far as is reasonably practicable. Upgrades are being prioritised at higher risk sites and where measures are aimed at preventing release of fuel from tanks. In order to avoid disrupting operations and supplies, the upgrading work is being phased. All necessary upgrades are expected to be complete by 2028.</p><p>The 87 fuel terminals and 7 refineries have already completed many of the high risk and low cost improvements required. Improvement plans for upgrading storage tanks at the fuel terminals have also been agreed with the CA and progress against plans is monitored on an annual basis. A new risk assessment method for the very large tanks at the oil refineries was agreed with the CA in October this year and the refineries will submit their upgrading plans for approval by March 2015.</p><p> </p> more like this
