Science Sunday: People in a Changing Sea

Description: 

People in a Changing Sea:
Achieving Resilient Coastal Fisheries in an Era of Global Change

Elena M. Finkbeiner, Ph.D.
People in a Changing SeaPostdoctoral Researcher, Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions
Nereus Postdoctoral Fellow in Sustainable Fisheries, Conservation International

Marine fisheries employ hundreds of millions of people around the world, and in developing countries alone, more than one billion people depend on fish for their primary source of protein. As oceans and coasts are increasingly confronted by uncertainties from overfishing, climate change, and global markets, coastal communities must learn to anticipate, adapt, and respond to these changes for their long-term well being.

Join us as Elena Finkbeiner discusses working with local fishing communities and shares their efforts towards resilience in a changing world.

Join us on the third Sunday of every month (except December) for a public lecture from a marine scientist, who presents current research and topics in an entertaining and easy-to-understand format, with up-to-date photos, video, and discussion. Science Sunday is for everyone interested in the world around them.

*Lectures are one hour long and take place at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center at 1:30 PM.

Doors open to the lecture hall at 1:00 PM.

Lecture passes are available at the admissions counter at 12:30 PM.

Seating is limited and first-come, first-served. No late seating.

Lectures include time for a few questions at the end. Science Sunday is free with admission, and always free for members. Recommended for ages 10 and older.
