    Education in Aquaculture Can Improve the Seafood Industry Globally

    For the aquaculture industry to be successful, you need a community represented by professionals in the field, workers on the factory floor, students and learners, government officials, investors, etc. to work together on common goals, providing a sustainable product through a best practice approach, that will meet the consumer demand.

  • Aquaculture America 2017 Presenter: Dr. Ralston on Ocean Fish and Selenium

    As a Biomedical Research Scientist, how and when did you first become interested in looking at seafood?

    I was working with the Human Nutrition Research Center which studies selenium physiology and became aware of how important selenium is in brain studies. Along the way I found out that Mercury had a very high binding affinity for selenium. And pretty much the way mercury toxicity causes its problems and the things we'd expect to see if they were interfering with selenium, all lined up pretty much immediately. This was back in about 2001.

  • Love Fish? LoveTheWild

    Will you please share with us how LoveTheWild came to be?

    Jacqueline and I started the company in 2014; with a mission to change the way Americans eat fish, as well as change the way they think about farmed fish. Research in the US shows that we don’t eat enough fish here (USDA recommends two 4-6 oz. portions per week, per person), and we believe that’s because people are intimidated by fish, including how to cook it, knowing what’s sustainable, knowing what’s healthy, and more. We wanted to take the guesswork out of fish, what to flavor it with, and what species to trust from a sustainability and health perspective. Fish is the most resource-efficient animal protein on the planet, and there are many reasons to eat more of it—global food security, human health, environmental sustainability, etc.—we wanted to provide a product that was a no-brainer way to get people to do just that.

  • What Everybody Ought to Know About Plastic

    There are not many places to turn without seeing plastic.  It is literally everywhere and unfortunately in our oceans.  I took a trip to New York recently where I was invited to be a part of Wildlife Conservation Film Festival’s screening event of A Plastic Ocean in Brooklyn, NY. 

    Plastic has become such a big part of our lives and we hardly know its effects.  Films like Craig Leeson’s were 7 years in the making but are right on time and a big eye opener.  One key takeaway after the film was that we are really far away from change but at the same time we are very close.  Let me explain.
