“Offshore Aquaculture & World Protein Demand:  Commercial Incentives to Fulfill Conservation Imperatives”

Speaker:  Neil Anthony Sims, Founder & CEO, Ocean-Era, Inc.

 

For registration please go here.

 

 

Demand for fish and seafood is the world’s fastest growing protein food sector.  Indeed, the authors of the 2019 UN High Level Panel on the Oceans and Climate Change urged human transition from terrestrial to more marine-sourced foods.  But with wild stock fisheries already at their peak (and possibly beyond), how do we achieve this?  Can we really build a healthier environment and have our fish and eat it, too?  Responsible open ocean aquaculture offers solutions.  With decades of experience in tackling these issues, aquaculture pioneer, Neil Sims, p’17, from his operations base in Kona, Hawaii, will present:  a history of open ocean aquaculture; current commercial incentives that are driving it; and the technical innovations Ocean-Era employs to balance marine protein demand with environmental concerns.   There will be ample time for Q & A, with priority given to viewer questions sent in advance to:  propellers@princetonaaa.org.

 

THE ZOOM LINK will be sent to the first 300 who register by March 7th

You are invited to join us for Princeton Diversity Discussions! In his 2021 State of the University letter, Princeton University's President Christopher L.

Doing so will require more discussions about challenging topics including race in America and at Princeton."

Xi for Life?

Xi for Life?

What Does It Mean for China and the World?

 

Rory Truex

Assistant Professor of Politics and International Affairs,

Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University

Jointly sponsored by Princeton Area Alumni Association and

the Association of Asian American Alumni of Princeton

 

 

 

Rory Truex's research focuses on Chinese politics and theories of authoritarian rule. His book Making Autocracy Work: Representation and Responsiveness in Modern China investigates the nature of representation in authoritarian systems, specifically the politics surrounding China's National People's Congress (NPC). He argues that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engineering a system of “representation within bounds” in the NPC, fostering information revelation but silencing political activism. Original data on deputy backgrounds and behaviors is used to explore the nature of representation, policymaking, and incentives in this constrained system. 

His research on Chinese politics has been published in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Comparative Political Studies, China Quarterly, and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Current projects explore how Chinese citizens evaluate their political system, the relationship between media bias and credibility in non-democracies, and patterns in dissident behavior and punishment.
