Managers are often faced with challenges arising from people’s action or inaction impacting the marine estate. For example, how to encourage people to start, stop, recommence, or continue fishing in a particular zone or for a size/species of fish; slowing boats down due to dugong breeding; or taking responsibility for rubbish in and around waterways. In this factsheet, we discuss how behavioural interventions can support managers’ goals in the marine estate.
