10,000 Years After Neolithisation, The Shift From Fisheries to Aquaculture on a Global Scale: Consequences, and Possible Solutions

Jun 29, 2018

Prof. Fabrice Teletchea will describe how and why, for the first time in human history, more than half of the fish consumed globally are farmed. Based on what has happened on land during the past 12,000 years following the onset of domestication of plants and animals (‘Neolithisation’), he will also describe the main consequences of this shift and possible solutions to promote a sustainable development of fisheries and aquaculture across the world. This lecture is part of UBC’s Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries 2018 Summer Series.

The event is co-sponsored by The Peter Wall Institute and The Consulate General of France in Vancouver.
