The second Food Talks event in the 2016 series is entitled “Fishy Business”. It takes place on 30th June 2016 (6.30-9pm) at the Impact Hub King’s Cross.
The event features leading speakers including Steve Trent (Founder & Executive Director of the Environmental Justice Foundation) and Emily Howgate (International Coordinating Director, International Pole & Line Foundation). The discussion will be chaired by Dan Crossley, Executive Director of the Food Ethics Council.
Fish forms an important part of a healthy diet, but many global fisheries have been overfished in recent decades. Have recent attempts to sustainably manage fisheries paid off? Will there always be ‘another fish in the sea’ for our children and grandchildren? Is fish a success story for sustainability? If not, what are the problems and answers needed? What about fish farming – aquaculture – whose growth has risen exponentially in the last decade? How should you make ethical choices about whether to eat fish and, if so, what fish to eat?
