Day 19: Dr. Ransom Myers stands up for the high seas!

Dr. Ransom Myers, an internationally renowned marine biologist at Dalhousie University and one of Fortune magazine’s 10 people to watch, stands up for the high seas with his daughter and her friend.

Dr. Myers comments:
"Permitting dragging in the high seas is the most destructive thing humans are doing in the oceans today. It would be shameful and ignorant for Canada not to support a U.N. moratorium on high seas dragging. This moratorium is needed to give time to come up with an effective high seas management plan before vulnerable deep-sea coral, sponge, and seamount ecosystems are destroyed beyond recovery".
