Knowlton-Jackson Distinguished Speaker Lecture

02/04/2021 - 3:00pm
8610 Kennel Way La Jolla, CA 92037, US
Event Description: 

Distinguished Speaker is Dr. Patricia Majluf, a native of Peru, an expert on fisheries and anchoveta (a fish in the anchovy family), and the vice president of Oceana Peru. The Peruvian anchoveta, the target of the largest single species fishery on earth, a cornerstone of the Peruvian economy, and a focus of Dr. Majluf’s work for decades. Up to 98 percent of Peru’s six to ten million ton annual catches of anchoveta are ‘reduced’ to create fish oil and fishmeal products. Dr. Majluf has worked tirelessly to change this by encouraging people to eat anchoveta directly, as doing so would make available millions of pounds of a heart-healthy and protein rich food source. By engaging with the fishing and processing industries, activist chefs, and the international sustainable seafood movement, Majluf has raised the profile of the anchoveta worldwide and is having a direct impact on improving the sustainability of the world’s largest fishery.

Alumni Speaker:  Mike Navarro, Ph.D. as been selected to represent CMBC Alumni.  Mike is an Assistant Professor in Marine Fisheries at the University of Alaska Southeast where he works to inform the seafood industry, seafood dependent communities, and marine resource policy makers regarding the impacts of oceanographic changes.   the Navarro Lab focuses on local seafood security research opportunities aimed to keep fisheries sustainable for families and ecosystems.
