From Boat to Bowl: Patterns and Dynamics of Hong Kong SHARK Tale
Speaker: Stan Shea

Brief Description

When you think about the ocean and it's many fishes, what comes into your mind? Many people would say "delicious" or "seafood", highlighting the most predominant relationship between man and sea. Hong Kong is one of the biggest per capita consumer of seafood in the world, and we have been importing our marine resources from over 130 countries/territories around the world each year. Do you think the ocean has limitless resources for our consumption, or are our oceans on the verge of collapse?

From fearsome sharks to colourful groupers, let's talk a bit about marine conservation – the fish's vulnerability to overfishing, Hong Kong's role in managing global seafood stocks, and what we can do to ensure healthy oceans and abundant sea life for our next generation.
