Food Choices Series: Overfishing and Sea Vegetables

February 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free
Food Choices Series

Date Changed to February 5th from 1- 3:30 pm.

Free Adult Class! Hosted by Robin Matathias (Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College). 

Food Choices are a series of classes that explore the connection between our food choices, food production systems, and their impacts, on both human and environmental health. Each day we make decisions about what to eat, and this simple daily act can have profound outcomes. These classes will teach you which food choices can lead to optimal human health while having the least environmental impact. Learn how to evaluate water use, land requirements, energy use, and waste production, to assess the ecological footprint and sustainability of our daily food consumption decisions.

This class is free to anyone and everyone, but you must register in order to receive the Zoom class link.


Overfishing and Sea Vegetables—Saturday, February 5, 2022, 1-3:30 pm
We read and hear how we should eat more fish for health reasons, but with our growing population and modern technology, we are fishing some species close to extinction. The huge cod fisheries of the past have collapsed, and Bluefin Tuna is now an endangered species. Learn how to make sustainable choices when it comes to fish, and discover the pros and cons of aquaculture. We will also look at sea vegetables, another bounty of the sea. Learn the many health benefits of consuming sea vegetables and incorporating them into your diet.
