“Mariculture certainly holds promise as part of the solution to meeting our need and demand for fish, but it’s not the obvious option that many people imagine”
How many of us have been told at some point in our lives “don’t worry…there’s plenty more fish in the sea”?
This old proverb might comfort us for disappointment in love, but taken in its most literal sense, few people seem to believe it.
Expiscor: v. /ek.spi.skɔːr/ – The latin word expiscor means to fish out, to find out, or to discover. It seemed like an appropriate name for this blog, which will offer my personal reflections on fisheries and aquaculture and how research can help improve their role in improving people’s lives.
Aimed at both development professionals and the general reader, each article will tackle a current or controversial topic, that I hope will inform readers and stimulate debate. Please feel free to provide feedback on this web forum or write to me directly email@example.com.
There will be about 10 articles per year – all of them written by me, and critiqued by one or more colleagues. I hope you enjoy them and perhaps even find them useful.
