I was recently fortunate enough to attend Seaweb’s 10th International Seafood Summit in Hong Kong. Fortunate for two reasons. First, because I had the honor of addressing the conference in an opening plenary presentation. Second, because I got to listen to a remarkable array of talks exploring solutions for ensuring a sustainable supply seafood to meet the world’s growing demand and need.
This commentary was written and posted at http://t.co/Pj33Ihi0 in response to an Opinion piece by Roger Bradbury that appeared in the New York Times on July 13th 2012. You can find the original opinion article at http://nyti.ms/SsXfT9.
Roger Bradbury’s apocalyptic vision for certain death of the worlds coral reefs clearly runs contrary to the views of the most ecologists. Headline grabbing it may be, but it requires a peculiarly singular view of the evidence to sustain his assertion.
