Once conducted almost entirely on dry land, the hunt for biochemical and pharmaceutical resources is shifting to the world's oceans. This program examines various phases of that research-algae and sponge extraction around the globe, the growing utilization of toxic substances produced by some marine organisms, and the practical application of treatments and cures that are often a dozen years in the making. With its ethical discussions about animal testing and the prerogatives of developing countries, Sea Changes provides a balanced and comprehensive look at a fascinating vanguard in undersea exploration.
