Food Choices Series: Overfishing and Sea Vegetables (4 of 5)
January 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Free Adult Class! Hosted by Robin Matathias (Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at Keene State College).
Food Choices is a series of classes exploring the connection between our food choices, food production systems, and their impacts on human and environmental health. Each day we make decisions about what to eat, and this simple daily act can have profound outcomes. These classes will teach you to make food choices based on the water use, land requirements, energy use, and waste that go into producing what we eat.
Professor Matathias has been teaching at Keene State College since 1997, in both the Environmental Studies and Music Departments. She specializes in teaching courses on Food, Health, and the Environment, which explores how diet, food production, and farming affects both human and environmental health, and Rethinking Energy, which explores our current energy use and resulting problems, and how to move towards a sustainable energy future.

Overfishing and Sea Vegetables—Saturday, January 28, 2023, 2-4:30 pm
We read and hear how we should eat more fish for health reasons, but with our growing population and modern technology, we are fishing some species close to extinction. The huge cod fisheries of the past have collapsed, and Bluefin Tuna is now an endangered species. Learn how to make sustainable choices when it comes to fish, and discover the pros and cons of aquaculture. We will also look at sea vegetables, another bounty of the sea. Learn the many health benefits of consuming sea vegetables and incorporating them into your diet.
