Maryland Public Television
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Millions of fish died. People experienced memory loss, confusion, and respiratory, gastrointestinal, and skin problems. And the press had a field day. This program provides an in-depth retrospective on the Pfiesteria hysteria that engulfed much of the mid-Atlantic region in 1997. Interviews with a wide range of concerned parties-aquatic botanists, an ecologist, an epidemiologist, a neuropsychologist, a government official, journalists, local fishermen, and coastal poultry farmers-provide insights into the origins, effects, and end results of that sensational P. piscicida crisis.
