Five polar scientists discuss how future (and present-day) humans fit into the Arctic bioenergetic food system. Why might X benefit from eating more vegetables (or being one)? Do humans want to farm in the sea with the same strategies used on land? What is multi-trophic aquaculture? Meet Lis Lindal Jørgensen, marine biologist at the Institute of Marine Research in...

What's eating You? p.1
