marine conservation ecology
focuses on the conservation and ecology of marine organisms and ocean ecosystems and aims to prevent/limit their degradation from human impact.
Marine conservation ecologists use a combination of disciplines including biology, ecology, economics, fisheries, marine policy/law, science communication, the humanities, and more.
Marine ecology problems include overfishing, pollution, invasive species, and/or impacts on foraging behavior. A variety of experimental and observational research approaches can help to address them including bioacoustics, oceanography, population biology, molecular genetics, spatial ecology, and biologging.
