Fish is both healthy and delicious, but for many consumers this is not enough. They want to know whether the fish comes from native seas or from overseas and whether it was caught with sustainable methods. Or was it produced by aqua farming and is it contaminated with antibiotics? Which role can algae play in tomorrow’s food supply? Answers to these questions will be given to guests of the “Knowledge Buffet” organized by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on May 31, 2017, for lunch and dinner. The venue will be the “Asia Dynasty” restaurant in the Karlsruhe city center.
