The research aims to understand the capabilities and limitations of innovation models and processes in natural marine companies in allowing the production of socially desirable innovation and the spill-over or knowledge transfer in the industry to be maximised in order to deepen understanding of innovation used. Research focuses on the Western Seaboard, where profile of companies were built through case study analysis and also innovation audit surveys were conducted through contacting natural resource companies along the west coast, where comparative analysis was undertaken to achieve industry relevant findings. Basing research on the Western region accurately focuses on the hub of innovative natural resource companies operating in the west today and reflects the current economic climate in the increasing need to focus on our natural resources for growth and development of regions particularly in rural areas where it is increasingly becoming the main source of employment.
