RAS Talk: Women in RAS
By Mari-Len De Guzman
Women account for 70 percent of the world’s seafood workers. However, many of them work in entry level, low-paying jobs and very few are in leadership roles. Is the industry paying enough attention to diversity in the aquaculture industry? Is gender diversity playing a factor into the design of RAS facilities? What resources exist for women in aquaculture for skills development and training that will allow them to move into leadership roles? These questions and more are discussed in this episode of RAS Talk.
