Aquaculture: Problem or solution? – Dr Cat Dorey

  • 21 Sep 2015
  • 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Lindfield Community Centre, 259 Pacific Highway

Aquaculture is often described as 'the solution' to our growing human populations and declining fish stocks. But is it really?


There's a lot to consider when trying to grow fish sustainably – the species of shellfish or finfish, what to feed it, where to grow it, the scale of production, and how to deal with waste and potential diseases. Dr Cat Dorey will take us through the problems facing aquaculture, and some of the solutions being developed to make aquaculture a truly sustainable and healthy source of food.

Cat has been working on seafood issues as a Science Adviser and Campaigner for Greenpeace for over 10 years. She has lectured on, and co-authored a chapter about, the challenges of sustainable aquaculture.
