Watch Dr. Zohar's Public Lecture
On October 1, Dr. Yonathan Zohar gave a lecture titled, "Avoiding Empty Oceans: Sustainable Aquaculture and the Future of Feeding the world." You can now watch the entire lecture online!
With 200,000 people added to our planet every day and an ever-growing increase in people’s appetite for seafood, we are very rapidly depleting our oceans and the Chesapeake Bay. Responding to this challenge, aquaculture has become the fastest growing agricultural industry in the U.S. and the world. However, it often employs practices that result in adverse environmental consequences. This lecture will describe a new generation of aquaculture technologies developed by IMET scientists to efficiently and sustainably produce quality seafood while reducing our dependence on wild fishery stocks.
