Fish Poo and the Climate Challenge

Fish Carbon was featured in issue 6 of The Marine Biologist, the member magazine for the Marine Biological Association of the UK (MBA), published in April 2016.

“Over the past few years, stories about how whales, sharks, fish and other marine vertebrates are important for tackling climate change have been appearing in mainstream news. In 2014, the UK’s ITV News covered how ‘Fish capture and store 1 million tonnes of carbon’, while The Guardian newspaper in the UK ran a story titled ‘Why whale poo matters’. Are these bold claims a case of the media not letting facts get in the way of a good story, or is there a real fire beneath the smoke?”
