Gary Jones, of Mars Fishcare, will be presenting, “Marine Sustainable Solutions,” at Delaware Valley University on Monday, Feb. 13 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Life Sciences Building auditorium. All are welcome and there is no cost to attend. Guests do not need to register in advance. 

Jones will discuss the positive impacts of small island family-owned captive breeding.  He sees this type of breeding as a way to improve local communities and protect oceans. Jones will also discuss how coral reef rehabilitation re-establishes local fish populations for future food security of the island communities and reduces erosion.

“DelVal provides students with the knowledge and experience to tackle the most important issues of our time,” said DelVal Associate Professor and Co-Chair of the Animal Biotechnology and Conservation Department Reg Hoyt. “Conservation efforts like this one are a great example of ways that individuals can make a difference in key issues. Guests are invited to join us at DelVal to hear an example of a true conservation success story that will leave them feeling hopeful about the future.”

The talk is part of the University’s One Health Seminar Series. One Health is a multi-disciplinary approach that works locally, regionally, nationally and globally to attain optimal well being for people and society, the environment and plants and animals. Together, the three major components make up the One Health triad, and the well being of each is inextricably linked to the others in the triad.
