Walking Fish and DukeFish are excited to welcome Niaz Dorry, coordinating director of NAMA and a Time Mag Hero for the Planet, to Durham for a talk this Thursday October 14th in Love Auditorium at 7pm.

In her talk, Dorry will explain why enacting and enforcing new policies that advance the rights and ecological benefits of small-scale local fishing communities, and give more control to local fishermen, is essential for protecting global marine biodiversity.

She will draw comparisons with U.S. farm policies, which, she says, have promoted the emergence of large-scale factory farming that is driving many family farmers out of business, degrading the environment, threatening the security of the nation's land-based food systems, and sapping the vitality of farming communities.

Please join us, refreshments and discussion to follow!
