Join Anna Sturrock and Tom Cameron in conversation with Jules Pretty about why the blue marine matters, and how seas and coasts can be regenerated.
Anna Sturrock and Tom Cameron are from the School of Life Sciences at the University of Essex.
The Louder Than Words podcast is about how ideas improve lives. Professor Jules Pretty created the Louder than Words podcast for conversations on how the world can be made a better place by inquiry, research and public engagement. These are ideas that can inspire individual, collective and policy action.
This is the first podcast from the Centre for Public and Policy Engagement at the University of Essex. There are three series a year: autumn, spring and summer.
Each episode of Louder Than Words takes a key contemporary issue and gives you a chance to hear from leading researchers, policy makers, thinkers and campaigners plus those directly affected by the issue.
The podcast is produced by Marcus Pierpoint and Luke Fitch of the University of Essex’s Media Centre. Producers of series 1-3 were Ali Martin and Martha Dixon.

Anna Sturrock is an aquatic ecologist with a particular interest in fish ecology, conservation and management. Anna primarily uses natural chemical tracers in fish tissues to reconstruct the migration patterns, phenology, physiology and trophic ecology of vulnerable and commercial species. The resulting datasets provide unique insights into the behaviours and habitat needs of fish in natural settings, allowing us to better predict how climate change and other stressors will affect their evolution and resilience. By revealing the critical habitats supporting fisheries and identifying the factors influencing trait success we can design more targeted management measures to protect critical ecosystem services during this period of unprecedented global change.
