Event Description

Prof Daniel Rubenstein from Princeton University presents this week’s seminar.

Fisheries provide food for a large part of humanity, often with heavy environmental footprints. Couplings of fishing effort across spatial scales and conflicts among different types of fishers have reduced stocks of some species, but not others, thus increasing the fragility of many fishery supply chains. The shock of Covid-19 has highlighted the inherent weaknesses of fishery supply chains, but has also revealed ways in which they can be made more resilient. In this talk we explore fishery supply chain dynamics and how making them more resilient can help make fishing more environmentally and economically sustainable.
