October 8, 2014 “If you take large swaths in the center of the food web out of play, you’re really going to alter the ecosystem in fundamental ways," Kathryn Sullivan, warning of the dangers of overharvesting forage fish, said on October 8. Sullivan is head of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and, as a former astronaut, the first U.S. woman to have walked in space. At Pew to mark that milestone, she closed her talk with a down-to-earth message about the importance of conserving these "hidden" fish.
