About Marittima Ltd.


Marittima has forged close relationships with interdisciplinary expertise and is able to bring a project team together as required. This includes expertise in the fields of:

  • Fisheries and aquaculture
  • GIS and mapping
  • Social sciences
  • Marine engineering
  • Waste management

Where environmental management best practice is concerned, the complexity of issues affecting the marine environment means that there is no single catch-all template or solution. As such we are highly motivated to understand the unique needs of each project and seek appropriate, proportionate and pragmatic solutions which are underpinned by emerging Blue Economy principles.

In addition, Marittima aims to facilitate the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations within the blue economy, shipping and pollution response communities.

We are contactable on a 24/7 basis.

Nicky has a BSc in Marine Biology and MSc in Tropical Coastal Management with 16 years' experience across a broad spectrum of marine environmental management. The last 10 years have focussed on pollution and emergency response, attending more than 30 incidents around the world in various capacities - both operaitonal and advisory. Before establishing Marittima she worked for ITOPF as a Technical Adviser and later a Senior Technical Adviser. She has also worked as a fisheries consultant and on coral reef monitoring and conservation projects for both the World Bank and NGOs and has experience with ESG impact investing. 

She has provided training on all matters relating to maritime pollution response as part of the joint IMO / IPIECA Global initiatives and has delivered OPRC Levels 1-3 courses all over the world. 

Previous hands on experience with environmental /social impact assessment, coral reef conservation and fisheries management enabling the provision of a holistic perspective both in emergencies and as part of complex projects.
