It is estimated that by the year 2050, Earth's population will reach more than 9 billion people, creating serious challenges for meeting global food demand while also addressing environmental sustainability concerns.
In this talk, Assistant Professor of Geography Sarah Lester will discuss the increasing role that marine aquaculture – farming of seafood in the ocean – is likely to play in addressing this wicked problem, both globally and along the Florida Gulf coast.
After the brief presentation, there will be a a public conversation and Q&A session on the topic.
Policy Pubs take place in the relaxed, informal atmosphere in the bar area of one of the city's most popular restaurants.
Pub attendees listen to brief, plain-language talks about such topics as politics, economics, the environment, and more. Then they ask questions and engage in friendly dialogue. It’s fun, social, interactive, and highly informative.
Because these events are very well attended, the public is encouraged to arrive early to get a convenient parking spot and a good table inside.
