Following the toxin trail to the bottom of the ocean
There's a tight and surprising link between the ocean's health and ours, says marine biologist Stephen Palumbi. He shows how toxins at the bottom of the ocean food chain find their way into our bodies, with a shocking story of toxic contamination from a Japanese fish market. His work points a way forward for saving the oceans' health -- and humanity's.
About the speaker:
Stephen Palumbi studies the way humanity and ocean life interact and intertwine. His insights into our evolving codependence offer practical solutions for protecting both the ocean and ourselves.
