About this event

Join Cumbria Wildlife Trust to chat about Cumbria’s 'local catch' and how we can all play a part in the transition to sustainable fishing.

By 2050 the world’s population will be around 9.7 billion, making sustainable food production one of the biggest challenges of our time. Shellfish such as crabs, langoustine, and mussels can be an amazing source of low-carbon protein, but the questions around where – and how – to find truly sustainable seafood are never quite simple.

Join us as we delve into the dos and don’ts of sourcing seafood, and explore the bright future of sustainable shellfish as a classic Cumbrian cuisine which helps both people and wildlife.

This event takes place online. We expect it to last around an hour, and you will be able to ask questions in the live chat, which will be answered at the end.

Can't make the session? Don't worry! As long as you're registered, we'll send you a recording afterwards to watch at your leisure.

The talk will be streamed live via Demio and details of how to join will be provided when you book. Please read the confirmation email carefully as you'll need to take further action to receive your unique joining link.

This is a free event run by My Local Catch, a marine awareness project based in Whitehaven.

Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, My Local Catch aims to show how small-scale, sustainably caught, seafood can form part of our diet, and help in the recovery of our seas and coastal communities.
