THE ROLE OF AQUATIC FOOD IN NOURISHING PEOPLE AND PLANET

October 19, 2021 | 10:00am EDT/ 7:00am PDT

Debates and decisions about food systems generally focus on agriculture and livestock. Yet, aquatic foods – fish, invertebrates, algae and aquatic plants captured or cultured in freshwater and marine ecosystems – play a central role in food and nutrition security for billions of people and are a cornerstone of the livelihoods, economies, and cultures of many communities.

This year’s symposium will explore the science behind the potential of aquatic foods to play a central role in ending malnutrition and in building healthy, nature-positive and resilient food systems.

The human health and conservation connection

Human health and the health of our environment are inextricably linked. Our collective resilience, well-being, nutrition, and ability to avert disease is fully connected to the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the ways we interact with nature.
