Climate change brings tainted shellfish to northern seas - UPI.com
A toxic mix of increased bacteria and increased water temperature is poisoning our oceans and the shellfish we eat because they are largely bottom feeders that filter the mud/sand on the ocean flow. This is also combined with increased bacteria in the water from human waste and then nitrogen from fertilizers. This is not a temporary problem that will go away since water temperatures will continue to rise, which activates the bacteria and nitrogen mix.
