“It is not in the terrestrial experience continuously to inhale the young, eggs, sperm, food and excreta of all of our fellow creatures … Although it may seem repulsive to us, it, nevertheless, is the way of marine life.”

- John D. Isaacs, Testimony before House Hearings, U.S. 92nd Congress, 24-25 May 1978.

Doing a literature search on pollution’s effect on white sharks and came across this quote in a journal article from 1981, Trophic Structure and the Cesium-Potassium Ratio in Pelagic Ecosystems. Just thought I’d throw that out there.
