Choosing and supporting policies and practices that promote responsible seafood can have significant environmental and health benefits, but for many finding and navigating through the sometimes conflicting information can be challenging. Overfishing and other harmful fishing practices, escapes and diseases from farmed seafood, and poor regulation of some seafood sources are just some of the many concerns that consumers face when choosing responsible seafood. All of these issues are important, but do they tell the whole story of seafood and the choices that are available?

This fall the Aquarium’s Seafood for the Future (SFF) program will host a special virtual panel series to explore sustainable seafood. The series will feature scientists and experts who will discuss the big picture of sustainable seafood and its role in and relationship with climate change, nutrition, livelihoods, policy, society, and more. Panelists will also explore responsible seafood farming, or marine aquaculture, as a tool to sustainably expand our seafood supply.
