ESS Fall Lecture Series – 2017 – Paul Greenberg – SEP 14 2017
Paul Greenberg is a bestselling American author focusing on ocean and environmental issues. His 2014 book American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood examined the odd fact that while the US controls more ocean than any country on earth it imports more than 85% of its seafood from other countries. His 2010 bestseller Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food won the 2011 James Beard Award for writing and literature. Many of the themes in Four Fish were later explored in a 2017 Frontline PBS documentary Greenberg anchored and co-wrote called The Fish On My Plate. Paul’s 2015 TED Talk has received over a million views. He has been a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellow, a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation and a W.K. Kellogg Foundation Food and Society Policy Fellow.
