Fish, Mercury, and Nutrition: The Net Effects, a 30-minute documentary, explores the many benefits of eating ocean fish and the risk of mercury exposure for the population with the most to gain (or lose): unborn and young children. Pregnant and nursing moms will learn why two ocean fish meals a week during the critical window of development can safely give their babies lifelong benefits. The rest of the population also benefits by including ocean fish in their healthy diets.

Funding is provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Marine Fisheries Service Pacific Islands Regional Office, and the members of Prairie Public.
