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.
