This summer, the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries presents a series of special lectures by leading ocean and fisheries experts from around the world.

10,000 years after Neolithisation, the shift from fisheries to aquaculture on a global scale: consequences, and possible solutions

June 29, 2018
11:00 am

Dr. Fabrice Teletchea

Dr. Fabrice Teletchea has studied fish for the past 15 years. He first worked on fish taxonomy and then moved to the study of fish domestication in aquaculture in the past ten years. Prof. Teletchea has also developed a comparative framework of the reproductive strategies of European freshwater fish species in order better understand the different trade-offs observed at the early life stages of fish, to help domesticating them more efficiently

Dr. Teletchea is appearing as part of the 2018 French Scholars Lecture Series sponsored by the Consulate General of France in Vancouver, and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies.
