Mindy Selman is a water quality expert at the World Resources Institute in Washington, D.C.

She studies what scientists call “eutrophication” – the pollution of coastal areas from excess nutrients. Eutrophication can lead to the collapse of fisheries, and toxic dead zones by tipping the ecosystem out of balance.

Selman speaks with EarthSky’s Lindsay Patterson.
