Managing the Seas for People & Nature

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 - 7:30pm
Bruneau Centre (IIC-2001), Memorial University

The Ocean Frontier Institute's Module I 'Informing Governance Responses in a Changing Ocean' and Too Big To Ignore - 'Global Partnership for Small-Scale Fisheries Research' are jointly organizing the Public Lecture 'Managing the Seas for People and Nature' by world-renowned scientist Dr. Rashid Sumaila, UBC, on Tuesday, September 187:30 p.m. at Memorial University, Bruneau Centre, Innovation Hall (IIC-2001).


Dr. Rashid Sumaila is a world-renowned scientist who is widely published and has received a number of awards in recognition of his work, including the 2017 Volvo Environment Prize. He specializes in bioeconomics, marine ecosystem valuation and the analysis of global issues such as fisheries subsidies, illegal fishing, climate change and oil spills. In his talk, he will address a crucial question still facing humanity: How to successfully manage the seas to ensure long-term sustainability while meeting the needs of people? He will answer this question by focusing on three key issues, i.e., how we tackle global warming and climate change; how we implement public policies such as the provision of government subsidies to the fisheries sector; and how we manage the seas.
