Last week, I recorded and posted a podcast episode (http://www.seapkupforblue.com/session162) about the upcoming move Finding Dori. In that episode, I quoted some excerpts from a Washington Post article which took information off the website of a non-profit organization that misrepresented data. This means that I helped spread the misrepresented data as well.
I didn't do it on purpose. I just didn't do my due diligence and complete my checks on the organization to make sure the information stated in the article was true. I wasn't a good scientist at all!
I found out that the organization was misrepresenting data in a Facebook post thread where a fisheries journalist and an expert in the field of ornamental fish called me out on what I did. I was angry at first for being called out, but I soon realized that I made a mistake because I didn't represent the true science.
Well, I did some background research and I recorded what I learned on the podcast to give you the right information.
Take a listen to hear the truth.
