Specialization: connecting the dots between ecology/sociology/economy (multidisciplinary). Inspired by people’s motivations, choices, perceptions and behaviour towards the marine environment, and in sustainable ocean use which makes good business sense as well as ecological sense. Background: PhD in tropical marine ecology (fish life cycle migrations between mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs), post-doc in sociology (perceptions of stakeholders in North Sea fisheries management). Marieke Verweij has been working at ProSea since March 2010.
