“Resilience of the Marine Food Supply”
In the quest for human rights and food security, people often forget about the marine food supply, but the ocean is the primary source of protein for a large percentage of the world's population. This presentation will talk about growing threats to marine foods, especially wild-caught ocean fish, and ways that we could improve domestic and international law to address them.
