A systems approach to reducing risk of obesity among First Nations and Métis children

Speaker: Martin Cooke, Associate Professor, Sociology & Legal Studies and School of Public Health and Health Systems, University of Waterloo

Fish for Thought in the Gospels

The study of fish consumption in antiquity is complex, as there is ongoing debate as to a) the degree to which ancients actually ate fish; and b) what sort of “fishy” ideologies (Beer, 2010) existed. The latter, in turn, could involve the avoidance of fish altogether, eating certain kinds, sizes or portions of fish, or raising the creatures on private fish farms. Although fishers were low on the social scale, eating fish, especially large fish, was considered a luxury.
