Description

Topic: Marine Conservation you can Taste! How Smart Seafood Choices Help Save Marine Life.

Speaker: Tallie Segel, Aquarium Education Coordinator

Using the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch guide for the Southwest, we can help marine conservation.

How do our everyday choices affect ocean conservation? It’s simple: understanding where our seafood comes from, and encouraging local businesses to purchase sustainably harvested seafood.

At this Brown Bag Lecture, learn these things:

  • What’s good, the best alternatives, and what to avoid…and why!
  • How to use the Seafood Watch App or Pocket Guide in the supermarket…
  • How to find the information you need to make ocean friendly choices…

Can't make it on Saturday? Come to the seminar on Thursday, April 3.
