> September 15, 2016: Fish, and Tackling "Stimulating Sustainable Production"

On first blush, seafood seems quite different from our other food. Fishing is the last domain where most of the supply is hunted, rather than cultivated. Furthermore, we consume a much wider variety of aquatic animal species than terrestrial ones. 

And yet so many of the lessons sustainable food systems promoters have learned apply to seafood as well - small scale tends to mean lower impact, local and short value chains increase the rewards to careful stewards of resources, and geography matters. 

This webinar will examine how large-scale fishing compromises the environment, the return to traditional methods, the value of fishing certifications, and a truly innovative and sustainable approach to seafood farming. It will connect the problems and solutions of "landfood" with our other, often forgotten, source of food- the sea. 

Join Niaz Dorry, executive director of the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, and Bren Smith of Greenwave for this eye-opening webinar.
