How can we play a role in securing the future of our seas and how can we mobilise people to get excited about sustainable fish? How can we ensure that fisher livelihoods are protected, as well as our seas? We’ll hear from experts, chefs and champions of sustainable fishing on how we can play a role in securing the future of our seas, how to get the right fish on the menu, where to shop for sustainable seafood and how to unhook ourselves from the wrong catch.

The idea of our Food Talks series is to stimulate debate about the issues that surround the world of food and to explore solutions to those challenges. Please join us!
