A very good speech on health of waterways in USA.
The following speech was given Oct. 14 at the Metropolitan Club in New York City by Stephen M. Coen, Ph.D., president and CEO of Sea Research Foundation, Inc., the parent organization of Mystic Aquarium:
We must pay attention to the food chain in our oceans and waterways. We have depleted large stocks of fish, and many of the ocean’s top predators—including whales and sharks—are endangered. These animals are sentinels of the sea. If we listen, they will tell us what is happening in the ocean environment. Understanding their immune systems can help us prepare for and react to adverse changes in our own environments.
