A note from the North Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s Environmental Initiatives Committee:

Warmer waters at the beach might feel nice when you go for a quick dip, but what could it mean for the fish? Researchers at Harvard have found that higher temperatures and overfishing are increasing the amount of methylmercury in commonly eaten fish such as tuna, cod and dogfish. A lot of it has to do with the fish food chain. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat fish anymore, but according to the researchers: “We wanted to show people that [climate change] can have a direct impact on what you’re eating today, that these things can affect your health … not just things like severe weather and flooding and sea-level rise.”

As always, the Environmental Initiatives Committee would like to hear from you. Contact us at [email protected]com with any questions, issues, or to receive updates on upcoming programs and events.
