UBC Dialogues is hosting a discussion entitled “Do Fish Have a Future?” on Thursday, March 3 at the Gateway Theatre, from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. UBC and community experts will be on hand to answer questions about the future of fish:
Many believe the oceans now contain just a tiny fraction of the large fish they once held. How do we satisfy the worldwide appetite for fish, while at the same time maintaining stocks for the future? Is there such a thing as ‘sustainable fisheries’, or do we need a complete moratorium to nurse certain species back to health? Who’s monitoring sustainable practices? Where will change come from: new government rules, pressure from advocacy groups or within the industry itself?
UBC Dialogues is a series hosted by the UBC Alumni Assocation.
