Default A prescription for the ocean's ailing health

A prescription for the ocean's ailing health
By Dr. Greg Stone, for CNN

A prescription for the ocean's ailing health - CNN.com
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Twenty years ago when I had the opportunity to dive to 18,000 feet in the Japanese research submersible "Shinkai 6500" in the Sea of Japan. I fantasized about the amazing animals our team might see deep on the ocean floor: rat-tails, deep sea sharks, and octopi.

But when we reached the sea bottom, it was littered with trash that included food bags, soda cans, empty boxes, and even a broken toy doll. I shudder to imagine what that same sea bottom looks like today...
