“Confronting a sea of change: Overcoming uncertainty and inequality in global fisheries”

Monday, May 6
2:00-3:00 PM

Description: Fisheries are critical for food and livelihood security for billions of people across the planet, yet face increasing uncertainty and inequality given climate change, globalized markets, and other large- and small-scale drivers of change. This talk explores the current challenges fisheries face within this context, and the potential for interdisciplinary research methods and collaborative impact initiatives to help elucidate adaptive strategies and solutions for increasing resilience and equality in fisheries worldwide.
