Not only is the ocean being overfished, it's also getting warmer and more acidic. What will this mean for marine biodiversity and seafood? Where will fish populations decline and where will they thrive? And what can be done to make ecosystems more resilient? Join us in a chat with ecologist Villy Christensen and anthropologist Yoshitaka Ota to discuss the latest results from the Nereus Program, an innovative effort that combines computer models and 3D gaming technology to explore the future of the oceans.
Join us at a special time, 3 p.m. EST on Sunday, 19 February for a live chat on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts.
