This panel will be moderated by Florie Hovine, initiative coordinator, from the Earthworm Foundation. Panelists will include Justine Delettre, from Nausicaa Aquarium to talk about the Mister Goodfish program, and how the program is recognizing good farming practices and promoting shrimp products in stores.
