SEE Science Center presents Science on Tap at the Shaskeen Pub
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
What’s on the menu? Understanding the labels behind ‘sustainable seafood’.
Unsustainable fishing is a key issue facing our oceans. Governments, non-profit organizations, members of the fishing industry, retailers and others are developing innovative ways to address the problems – but understanding ‘sustainable’ and ‘local’ labeling can be confusing. We’ll discuss certifications, eco-labels, evaluations and branding for sustainable seafood; and identify global and local initiatives, consumer education, marketing incentives and fishing method innovations.
