Sink or Swim

Tânia Almeida is one of the most recent collaborators of B2E CoLAB, in the area of Innovation Management, and accepted the challenge of answering another Sink or Swim questionnaire.

Beach or countryside?

I have the privilege of enjoying both. I live near the beach, but I have my family roots in the countryside.

Swimming or sunbathing?

Sunbathing, with a book and until sunset… restores my energy.

Dog or cat?

I’m more of a cat person. I don’t currently have any, but I’ve had several. Their curiosity, independence and lifestyle, fit my personality best.

Netflix or You Tube documentaries?

I don´t have Netflix. Documentaries yes, but mostly on general TV channels.

Facebook or LinkedIn?

Linkedin, I don’t have Facebook. In fact, I am not a very active user of social media.

Aquaculture or Wild fish?

I consume both. But what I am looking for, above all, is that its origin is based on sustainable practices that respect the conservation of ecosystems.

Meat or vegetables?

Both. And, even better, if it’s a barbecue, with meat, lots of vegetables, friends and laughter around a table.

Coffee or Tea?

Hard to decide…. but I would say tea, especially fermented (kombucha). But I can’t do without my espresso or a cup of brewed coffee after lunch.

Nori Algae or Sea lettuce?

Once again, both. I enjoy the sea flavor of seaweed in general, but I would say Nori in sushi and sea lettuce in a good fish soup.

Sushi or grilled fish?

Grilled fish and a good salad…always tastes like summer. But, I also enjoy a good sushi from time to time.


They are both good production systems. But as a scientist, the concept and complexity of IMTA fascinates me, since it is an integrated biological system that, when optimized, is a good example of the application of circular economy principles.
