Summary
With no obvious predators to curb the population, humans are experiencing a growth in numbers that stands outside the laws of nature. What role does man play in the decreasing biodiversity of the earth, and of marine life in particular? In this program, the Tara Oceans researchers go to the Indian Ocean to investigate human influence on the health of the seas. Around the Austral Islands, the team finds copepods are being attacked by viruses, leading to speculation about the role of viruses in a balanced ecology. Sailing on, they encounter former fishing zones overrun by jellyfish and areas of damaged coral-troubling signs of rising oceanic temperatures.
