In this week's show, digging into the science of conservation, we look at the environmental issue of mercury in our oceans. Speaking with Professor Yanxu Zhang, we discuss how mercury gets into our atmosphere eventually becoming the bioaccumulative toxin methyl mercury, and this impacts oceanic food webs ending with human consumption.
