Summer Lecture Series: “Environmental Change for Health and Well-being—How Global Fisheries Connect Us All”

A free lecture presented by Dr. Kathryn Fiorella, Assistant Professor, Cornell’s Department of Public & Ecosystem Health

Fish are touted as sustainable and nutritious, but growing global demand for fish and expanding aquaculture are quickly reshaping these food systems. At the same time, our global freshwaters are experiencing the most dramatic falls in biodiversity and wild fisheries will continue to be a major source of food. As aquatic food systems and environments are revamped, what does that mean for the people who live and work within these systems? How does it impact their choices about how to use fisheries and their access to biodiversity within them? Kathryn Fiorella will use the case of Cambodia’s social-ecological food systems to examine these questions. This talk will ask both how people adapt and the constraints they face, and the ramifications of environmental change for their health and well-being — and how global fisheries connect to us all.
