We have two interesting speakers this #mondayfixgoa to converse on how the changing nature of seafood consumption, particularly in tourist destinations like Goa, is changing our environment and the future of our food.
Vikram Doctor is a journalist with the Economic Times. He writes features, mostly on material culture in India and with a special focus on the many roles and functions of food in Indian society. You can follow him @vikram.doctor
Dr. Aaron Savio Lobo is a naturalist at heart, a conservation scientist by training and gourmet by aspiration. That said, he tends to see the world through two lenses – Nature and Food. What we eat, where it comes from, who produced it, at what cost, and most importantly, how to eat and feed the planet sustainably are questions that keep him occupied. On completing his PhD from the University of Cambridge in marine conservation science he decided to venture beyond academia and has worked on a diversity of projects in the marine conservation domain in a wide range of countries and contexts. These include understanding the impacts of tropical fisheries on ecosystems and livelihoods, setting up participatory models for the management of Marine Protected Areas, setting up programmes for monitoring small-scale fisheries. He is currently a member of the IUCN SSC Marine Conservation Committee and is an advisor on the seafood advisory service called Know Your Fish. You can follow him @meenscientist
