Associate Professor Carissa Klein is a leading researcher whose work is at the forefront of marine and coastal sustainability and conservation efforts, and at the next BrisScience, she’ll be exploring that question.

Dr Klein will share new research that dives into the seafood we eat, where it comes from, and whether or not it is sustainable. She will also provide you with some tips on how you can make more sustainable seafood choices, so that your next seafood platter is as sustainable as it is tasty.

We are very excited to welcome you back to The Edge next month. We'll be serving up delicious light refreshments and drinks after the presentation.
