Overfishing has pushed marine populations to the tipping point, risking the extinction of fish species across the world. Ultimately the choices made by fishermen are dictated by the market, and depend on the demand for various types of seafood. Is it possible to influence consumer choice, “nudging” people’s behaviour so that many small nudges might ultimately lead to a huge improvement in marine health? This is precisely the question at the heart of this programme, which brings together an expert on behavioural decision making and a marine ecologist and geographer.
