Dr Denise Hardesty on ending plastic waste (Part 1 of 2)
Dr Denise Hardesty is Senior Research Scientist at CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere, based in Hobart, Tasmania. She has been leading a diverse array of research projects for the past 10 years, with her main research projects focused on impacts of marine debris and the development of analytical tools for tackling illegal unreported and unregulated fishing activities. We talk about applied her team's marine debris research and how it is used to inform and underpin policy and decision making.
This is the first of our two-part chat with Dr Hardesty, with the second (and final) part released next week.
