Tue 14 April
This year’s Kurt Grönfors Lecture includes speeches by Erik Lindebo, Mike Melnychuk and Ragnar Tveterås that address the issue of sustainable seafood production from three different perspectives.
Sustainable management of fish and fisheries resources is a global challenge, which requires knowledge across natural and social science perspectives. Many of these resources have suffered the effects of open-access conditions with depleted stocks and poor profitability for a long time. Recently, catch share systems and aquaculture have offered solutions to the open-access problem, but at the same time put focus on other types of challenges for sustainable management.
