Date: 08/21/08 7:00 pm
Location: Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium, Santa Monica Public Library, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA

As worldwide demand for seafood grows, so does the pressure on our oceans to provide food for a hungry planet. Now, more than ever, our choices at the seafood counter and in restaurants impact what happens in the ocean. Sheila Bowman will talk about the current state of seafood systems, issues surrounding fisheries and aquaculture, how those issues translate into stories about our favorite fish, and actions that each person can take to really have an impact on the health of our ocean. Sheila will provide Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch pocket guides, which make seafood choices easier. Come learn how your favorite seafood rates as a “green” choice and how you can choose seafood that is both delicious and good for the oceans!

This free lecture is presented by COSEE-West and the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.
