ONE FISH, TWO FISH, FEED FISH, FOOD FISH
Meeting Nutritional Challenges in Aquaculture and Aquatic Resources Management
The fourth National C-FAR “Lunch~N~Learn” Hill Seminar of 2010 will be Monday, March 22, from 12:00-12:25 p.m. in 1302 Longworth House Office Building. The featured speaker is Dr. Jesse Trushenski, Southern Illinois University Carbondale. She will highlight the roles of aquaculture in the public and private sectors in a fish-hungry world, identify challenges in the context of fish nutrition and aquafeeds, and propose strategies to strengthen aquaculture and seafood security in the U.S.
“The U.S. is one of the largest consumers of seafood, and yet we rely primarily on imports to meet our needs,” says Dr. Trushenski. “Research is underway to address the biggest constraint, more cost-effective and sustainable feeds for domestic aquaculture.”
“We are pleased to help facilitate the necessary discussions about how multidisciplinary research and education can help attain long-term solutions for pressing food and agricultural issues,” said Chuck Conner, President of the National Coalition for Food & Agricultural Research (National C-FAR). “This presentation is an excellent example of how federally funded food and agriculture research and extension can produce the scientific outcomes and outreach needed to meet 21st century challenges and opportunities.”
