Description

Panel: The Future of Fish How do we feed the world and protect the future of fish? Seafood is a key protein source for many people, particularly in the developing world. In the face of rising populations and declining wild resources, what is the future of fish? Aquaculture is being touted by some as the only viable way to increase seafood supply without placing further stress on marine ecosystems but many aquaculture operations remain heavily reliant on fishmeal from wild stocks. How do we balance these competing views and develop thoughtful policies, which result in a larger food supply? Leaders from nonprofit, industry and government discuss the challenges and solutions and our options for the future of fish as part of Blue Vision Summit 3. PANELISTS: George Leonard (Ocean Conservancy), Barton Seaver (Chef, author), Dr. Jeremy Jackson (Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation), Ed Rhodes (Phillips Foods) Moderator: Ted Morton (SeaWeb) Organizer: Becky Marshall (SeaWeb) For more information: http://www.bluefront.org/blue_vision_blog/bvs3/agenda/sunday22/#fish
