Cod farming, climate change and...death threats?
Cod farming is making a comeback, but can it avoid all the past blunders? Climate change is taking an increasing toll on the seafood sector, both in aquaculture in fisheries.

Love this pod, esp the salmon analysis!
Great content, but the poor audio quality
