Award-winning author Paul Greenberg will give a lecture titled “American Catch: The Catch for our Local Seafood” on April 27 at 4:30 p.m. in Monmouth University’s Multi-Purpose Activity Center, Varsity Clubrooms. “American Catch” looks at three case studies: the effort to bring oysters back to our Eastern shores, the threat to Alaska’s wild salmon industry from mining interests, and the effect of globalization on Gulf Coast shrimp. This event, free and open to the public, is part of Monmouth University’s Science, Society, and Sustainability Seminar series. There will be a book signing immediately following the author’s presentation.
