Fishing the Anacostia

Added to Forum: 3/8/13

Running Time: 12:22

Fishing the Anacostia

Over 17,000 people eat fish from the Anacostia River in Washington D.C. every year. The recommended annual consumption amount for catfish, carp, and eel is zero. Allowances for other fish species are at best, one per month. Decades of pollution have resulted in a buildup of toxins that sicken the fish population. Efforts are underway to return the river to a more natural state and the fisherman themselves are key to addressing the problem.

The Ocean's Super Bowl Commercial

Amidst the backdrop of traditional Super Bowl commercials, this beautiful ocean imagery from the National Marine Sanctuaries is followed by a dramatic cut to black, where several seconds of darkness and silence aim to spark viewers to think about what may be lost if the ocean is not returned to health. Produced by Talbot Productions as the result of a partnership between SeaWeb and NBC Bay Area, part of the NBC Owned Television Station Group.

Floating Cities

Almost a third of the Netherlands lies below sea level, and over the centuries the country has developed a highly efficient flood-defence system. The tragic floods of 1953, caused by a storm surge and exceptionally spring tides, led to a range of modern-day engineering solutions as well as a heightened awareness in Dutch society of the dangers of sea level rise. Presented by European Environmental Agency.
