Summary
While the Sydney Harbor is as blue and sparkling as ever, beneath the surface lurks a dark menace that is eliminating as much as 40% of the invertebrate population. The levels of dioxins in fish from Sydney Harbor are now so high that even eating just one in an entire year is enough to put you in danger. In this video segment, meet geochemist Gavin Birch and hear about his investigation of this problem.
