I had the pleasure of interviewing Madeline Cashion for this episode, where we discussed managing big data for fisheries management with a focus on Sharks. 

Madeline completed her Masters with this project. She studied 65 years worth of fisheries data in the Mediterranean to better understand how shark populations in the region have changed. It wasn't an easy process as there are many challenges in analyzing a long term dataset. 

Madeline and I discuss the challenges of using big data and how she overcame those challenges to create a useful thesis project that could be applicable to managers in the Mediterranean.
