Author Professor Russell Fielding discussed artisanal whaling in St. Vincent & the Grenadines and the Faroe Islands, and issues related to conservation, cultural traditions, and globalized networks of food, information, and pollution.

Was a very popular event with Russell giving a honest and frank insight into whaling in these regions which generated a rich and interactive Q & A.
