The Blob

(First airdate: April 23, 2020) We’ve all heard about The Blob. But what exactly is it and what is its impact? In 2014 and 2016, a mass of warm water formed in the Pacific Ocean, wreaking havoc on marine life. And again, this past fall a similar ‘blob’ of abnormally warm water reappeared off the California coast. Coastal Café explores this phenomenon with fishery biologist Dr. Chris Harvey, NOAA NW Fisheries Science Center.
