Grocery shopping for whales

Anisha sets sail with Andrew, in order to get to the bottom of the Bay of Fundy’s food chain. Anisha discovers three quick links which make up this chain: from foundational phytoplankton, to tiny crustacean copepods, to mighty whales. Every creature must eat to survive, and their underwater food chain is what binds the ocean together.
