Speaker: Martin Schreibman, Aquatic Research & Environmental Assessment Center (AREAC), Brooklyn College

Discussant: John Marra, Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University

Fish stocks across the world's oceans are declining and current fishing practices are seen to be unsustainable. Many proposals have been put forward to ameliorate this problem, including fishing quotas, aquaculture projects, as well as the recent National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's proposed legislation to expand fish farming in the US EEZ (up to 200 miles from the coast). Reactions have been mixed. Ultimately, the preservation and management of the ocean's resources will require rethinking society's relationship to the seas and to ocean life.

Dr. Martin P. Schreibman, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biology at the City University of New York's Brooklyn College, will discuss the concept of sustainable urban aquaculture and the several approaches that it might take using the newest technology of re-circulating aquaculture systems (RAS).

Dr. John Marra, Doherty Senior Scholar and Associate Director for the Biology and Paleo- environment Division at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, will provide additional insights. His research interests include the productivity of the ocean, as well as society's relationship to the ocean in terms of food resources.
