Sustainable Seafood Teach-In

Fishing for Sustainability: Finding the fine balance between our fish and our fishermen
1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Harvard University Science Center B
Our waters may be cold, but the topic of sustainable fishing in New England is hot. We know that the bounty of the sea is special to New England. How do we most accurately assess our fish stocks? Which fish varieties should we be eating? How do we maintain the tradition and livelihood of our fishing fleet and still safeguard our environment and our fish? Where does Aquaculture fit in? Join us for this Teach-In on New England fishing and hear from experts in policy, science, nutrition, the environment, business — and from our fishermen.
