In 2004, 20 years after a "deathly silent" response to Farley Mowat's "Sea of Slaughter" ( http://www.youtube.com/watc...
), my own observations on worrisome, visible changes in marine life - and on deficiencies in accepted fisheries science - became the subject of this short television documentary on the "starving ocean". Farley was also interviewed in this piece, and he gave his views on why I was then being "frozen out" by the scientific establishment.
This show was produced by CBC and financed by Canadian taxpayers, including me. I, however, was forced to pay much more than a few tax dollars for personally daring to discuss the inconvenient truth about the ocean in the media. Shortly after this show was aired on TV in 2004, the Nova Scotia government (my former employer) severely punished me for appearing in it. I was ridiculed by government agents, who then clawed back a pension I'd earned years before by working as a nurse, and who still deny me any recourse against that decision.
