Blue innovation: Oceans to feed the planet


Overview

The over-exploitation of lands has shown its limits. New research suggests that the seas and oceans have vast potential to feed the planet - but tapping that resource ecologically will be a challenge for science, industry, regulation, fisheries, health, climate, and other silos of EU policy.

 

Following a scientific opinion by the EU's Scientific Advice Mechanism and SAPEA report on "Food from the Oceans," Science|Business will bring together its members and experts to debate the steps needed across the policy world and showcase regional initiatives.
