New podcast released: ‘Pyramids of Life’

11 January 2022

Episode 21 of our podcast series is now available.

In this edition we hear about a groundbreaking £1.5m project that seeks to better understand how we can work sustainably to manage our oceans. The project, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), aims to develop a methodology that will enable us to more robustly quantify the effect that fishing has on the marine ecosystem.

Led by Professor Jon Pitchford at the University of York, the project involves colleagues at the universities of East Anglia, Essex and Roehampton, as well as researchers at the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), based at Lowestoft, and other stakeholders across the UK.

Joining Phil Ward to explain the project, the issues underlying it and what they hope to achieve through it are experts from UEA, Essex and Cefas.
