Catch of the Day: Mercury

What's the Catch of the Day? Mercury. It's poisoning our waters, our fish, our bodies and it isn't going away any time soon. Each year tons of mercury gets into our streams, bays and oceans. How does it get there, what does it do to us and how can we protect ourselves?

On this edition, we go to the San Francisco Bay. Joined by a public health analyst, we'll talk to local fisherman, new moms, restaurant-goers and the E.P.A. about mercury.

This program was made possible in part by a grant from the As You Sow Foundation.


Steve, fisherman; Eli Saddler, Northern California public health analyst; Sarah and Kim, moms on pier; Linda and Margaret, PF Chang's China Bistro patron; Allan Hirsch, CA Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment Chief Deputy Director; Lisa Rudman, National Radio Project's Executive Director.
