Alumnus Jerry Knecht, class of 76 will be giving a talk at Bowdoin next Tuesday night at 7:30pm in Main Lounge, Moulton Union. The subject of the talk is Sustainable Fisheries, but the byline of his talk is perhaps even more interesting - Working Hard to Save Us from Ourselves. Mr. Knecht leads by example. Since his graduation from Bowdoin he has founded a company called North Atlantic Seafood right here in Portland, Maine as well as a company in Indonesia called B.T. Bali Seafood International. However, his goals have expanded to the creation of The Bali Seafood International Collaborative which provides an environmentally sustainable economic platform for fisherman within the local community.
Join us for lunch on Tuesday at 1:00pm for an informal conversation about creating sustainable economic growth and building a career for yourself that includes helping to save us, from us.
