A unified approach may benefit water quality, environment more than piecemeal.
New research has used a combination of records from captains and scientific observers, FAD tracking data, ocean models and cutting edge simulation methods to reveal for the first time the trajectories and potential impact FADs may have on fisheries around Pacific island nations.
First major study on "nudging" people towards sustainable diets. Replacing just one meat or fish dish with another veggie option in college cafeterias dramatically increased herbivorous dining while maintaining sales. Vegetarian food needs to "land more starring roles" on menus, say researchers. Findings have influenced food policy at Cambridge University.
