About Saltwater Life

Saltwater Life was founded by Dr Lauren Smith to serve as an educational resource accessible to all who wish to learn more about our aquatic world.

Lauren is a marine biologist who specialises in shark research, she is driven to dispel the myths and rumours derived from a fundamental misunderstanding of sharks, and strives to promote enjoyment, appreciation and conservation of the oceans.

Saltwater Life serves as a platform for Lauren’s work as a:

  • researcher
  • writer
  • diver
  • photographer

Lauren is also available to provide specific advice and information to sea users and developers (such as those in the marine energy sector), about the conservation status, biology and habitat usage of elasmobranchs (sharks, skates and rays) around the UK coastline which should be assessed in relation to planned projects.
