Let’s Talk About Sustainable Seafood
Sunday, April 29; 7:00 p.m.
Part of the Let's Talk About Food series.
Seafood is increasingly important to the human diet, but is the future of this protein source at risk? A crash course in “Seafood 101” shares a number of informed perspectives on threats to fish stocks and to marine ecosystems in the context of the New England economy.
Consider the complexities and tradeoffs of potential solutions, the role of technology in the future of seafood, and discuss the role we each play in finding the balance in an uncertain future.
More about this season of Adult Offerings at the Museum of Science:
We are changing our world and it is changing us. Join us as we explore forces of nature—volcanoes, asteroids, weather—that we cannot control.
Think critically about our impact on a food system that profoundly affects us and our planet. Engage in a scientific look at creativity, a critical resource for shaping the future and one that you can harness yourself.
We are constantly adding to our seasonal lineup of special guest lectures, panel discussions, podcasts, social event, and more. To stay in touch with the latest Museum Happenings, visit mos.org/events.
The Museum takes a hands-on approach to science, engineering and technology, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year via its programs and 700 interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, 3-D Digital Cinema and Butterfly Garden. Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers." For more information, visit mos.org.
