Sustainable Oceans will launch it’s first course this Fall Quarter!

6 September 2018

Sustainable Oceans: Natural and Human Systems is a graduate course in marine science and policy. It is open to all UC Davis students. Please see details below.

This week in Nature

UC Davis Civil and Environmental Engineering alumnus Eric Porse has a publication and the cover of the current issue of Nature Sustainability. And there’s an article about climate change and the cod fishery, too.

Sustainability. It’s what’s for dinner.

SO trainer and co-op extension specialist Jackson Gross has worked with local sturgeon producer Tsar Nikoulai to develop a complete aquaponics system. According to the Tsar Nikoulai vice president of operations, “The goal really is to be more sustainable…We hope that our success drives other fish farms to use resources that were formerly wasted.”

Want to know why Jackson is sitting in front of a bunch of things that clearly are not fish? Check out the very cool details.
