Aurore Maureaud is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. She is currently studying marine life and the complexity of ecosystems, before this she studied fisheries management in France and completed her Ph.D. in Denmark at the Centre for Ocean Life, DTU Aqua (National Institute for Aquatic Resources). Her research has focused on ecosystem functioning, and particularly on how species diversity and the environment influence ecosystem processes in fish communities. Today we talk about the documentary Seaspiracy and examine its claims about sustainable fishing. We talk about shark population decline, bottom trawling, statistical data on fish, and regulating the commercial fishing industry.
