Dr. Kevin Stokesbury, Professor and Chair at School for Marine Science and Technology's Department of Fisheries Oceanography, will discuss the history, present, and future sustainability of the fisheries of George's Bank. As a coastal city, sustainable fisheries greatly impact our community and economy, as many residents live along or earn a living from the ocean. Dr. Stokesbury will share lessons learned from his research on what our individual and community roles are in maintaining sustainable oceans. Following the lecture there will be a facilitated discussion exploring what actions we can take to affect change locally and globally, how we can we look to the past to learn from our mistakes or find solutions, what our ethical duty is to ourselves and future generations, and more. Seaport Art Walk artists will be on hand to discuss their concerns turned inspiration regarding the problems and solutions, globally, facing our oceans and waterways.
