Police say woman smacked man with a fish after stealing food
A woman is suspected of using a mackerel as an impromptu weapon.
Swedish police are investigating a bizarre assault case involving seafood allegedly used as an impromptu weapon, after a man says he was awakened from a nap by a woman slapping him in the face with a whole mackerel.
According to The Local, in the police report the man filed, he said he was sound asleep in his apartment when the woman came in and stole food from his refrigerator and 2000 kronor, or about $310. Then, not content to take her food and money and leave, the woman grabbed a whole mackerel that was handy, and started slapping the sleeping Swede in the face with it.
The bewildered victim woke up right away and called the police in a fury. The police, for their part, seem a bit confused about what exactly was going on in the incident. A spokesperson for the Nyköping police said they did not yet know how exactly the fish-wielding woman got into the apartment late at night, but they're pretty sure the man and woman know each other.
"They might live together sometimes," said Mikael Larsson of the Nyköping police. The alleged mackerel attack is being treated as an assault case and is currently under investigation, he said.

Police: Man sexually assaults woman after following her home from Nashville club
MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — Mt. Juliet Police officials have asked for the public's help in identifying and locating the suspect in what detectives described as a "brutal sexual assault." Officials say the man pictured above followed a woman home from a Nashville nightclub and sexually assaulted her.
On Tues., April 6, the man allegedly began acting suspiciously while at the Deja Vu adult club on Church Street. Police say he waited for the victim to leave then followed her to her Mt. Juliet apartment at Providence Trail Apartments.
He reportedly forced his way inside, hit the woman with a handgun, tied her up and sexually assaulted her multiple time. Afterward, he left with a large sum of cash.
Police say he was in a newer-model Maroon Cadillac CTS with no license plate.
The suspect was also involved in grab-and-run thefts from the Kay Jewelers in Slidell, Louisiana, Fultondale, Alabama, and Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Officials say it is possible that he's committing crimes across the southeast and will continue to do so.
“Our detectives are aggressively investigating this awful crime," said Mt. Juliet Police Chief James Hambrick in a press release. "The suspect is a dangerous person, and he must be apprehended soon before there are more victims. If anyone thinks they know who the suspect is, they are urged to give us a call.”
The suspect will face charges of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, especially aggravated burglary, and aggravated assault. The Mt. Juliet Police Department is offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to the suspect’s arrest and conviction.
Homeless man accused of rape and assault of 2 victims in Fremont
A homeless man was arrested in Fremont for two attacks on separate female victims on Thursday. A woman in her 60s is hospitalized after being sexually assaulted by the suspect.
FREMONT, Calif. - Officers in Fremont said the same man is responsible for two sexual assaults that happened Thursday morning.
The first incident happened in the area of Fremont Boulevard and Auto Mall Parkway. Police said a 57-year-old woman was walking in the area when she was pushed by a man and knocked to the ground. The suspect then tried to sexually assault her but was scared off by a bystander.
The perpetrator was later identified as 28-year-old Alexander Lomax, a homeless man out of Hayward.
At around 11 a.m. officer received a call from a residence in the area of Grimmer Boulevard and Blacow Road. Responding officers found a 67-year-old woman being sexually assaulted by Lomax.
"Officers stopped the violent attack and immediately took the suspect into custody," Fremont police said in a statement.
Lomax was booked on multiple charges of sexual assault, elder abuse, and battery.
Although many of the basic Atkins' principles remain (protein with every meal, restricted carbohydrates, no sugar) the new diet is more health-conscious than before.
In 2000 the Atkins Diet had around 2million followers including Geri Halliwell and Kim Cattrall
Old Atkins allowed you as much protein as you could eat. New Atkins recommends 4-6 oz with each meal (8 oz for tall men), which is within healthy recommended amounts.
Vegetables are allowed from day one - so much so that even vegetarians and vegans can follow this version of the diet.
Berries, nuts and legumes (chickpeas, kidney beans, lentils) and alcohol can be re-introduced after two weeks, and once you get within 10lb of your goal weight, wholegrains (bread, rice, even pasta) are back on the menu.
Coffee, once banned, is positively encouraged on the back of research which shows moderate caffeine intake boosts long-term health (it contains several antioxidants) and its fat-burning properties mean it may help with the regulation of body weight.
COMBAT ATKINS 'FLU'
In the first few weeks on Atkins, many dieters suffer with headaches, dizziness, weakness, fatigue and constipation.
Although some blame caffeine withdrawal (no longer necessary as coffee and diet drinks are permitted on New Atkins), these symptoms are also caused by the dramatic shift in fluid, and therefore salt, caused by the low-carb diet.
This can be countered by drinking lots of water and keeping salt intake up (New Atkins recommends at least half a teaspoon of salt a day or 2tbsp of soy sauce).
If symptoms persist, try temporarily increasing carbohydrates a little by adding more vegetables, nuts or seeds to the diet, cutting back again when you feel better.
Furthermore, the new diet introduces a merciful element of choice and its basic principles are easily customised to suit your individual metabolism, goals or time frame.
Anyone with less than a stone to lose, for instance, has the option of skipping the fast-track-first phase and kicking off their diet with a wider choice of dietary options.
But if you've spent years yo-yo dieting, you are over-50, or your body has an in-built resistance to weight loss, you are encouraged to spend as long on the first phase as you think you need.
And when you reach your target weight you can ease into an individually tailored maintenance plan that allows you to gauge your reactions to certain carbohydrates and adjust your long-term eating habits accordingly.
The key to success on the new Atkins is keeping a close eye on your daily intake of what the authors call 'net carbs' (also called digestible carbs or impact carbs).
On old Atkins you were expected to add up the total grams of carbohydrate you consumed in a day, keeping it under 20g (which is very low indeed).
New Atkins thinks in terms of 'net carbs', which you calculate by taking total carbs (in grams) minus fibre (in grams).
The idea is that because fibre is indigestible and so doesn't impact your blood sugar levels you can subtract the number of grams of dietary fibre from the total number of carbohydrate grams in any food, to find its true net carb value.
Cooked green beans, for example, may contain 4.9g of carbohydrate per half cup, but 2g of that is fibre, so the net carbohydrate value is 2.9g. Lettuce is 1.4g of carbohydrate per cup, but more than half of that (1g) is fibre.
The result is you can eat more carbohydrates on new Atkins, increase your intake of healthy foods, and still lose weight.
On the Atkins diet you just have to get used to life without the following:
- Fruit juice and sweetened fizzy drinks.
- Foods made with flour and/or sugar including white bread, pasta, pastries, biscuits, cakes and sweets.
- Food with any sugar.
- Low fat or diet foods (usually high in carbs!).
- Junk food.
- Chewing gum, breath mints, cough syrups which may contain sugar.
- Foods with added trans fats.
As your weight drops and you progress through the diet plan, you are encouraged to slowly re-introduce carbohydrates - in a specific order, one carbohydrate source at a time - to a maximum of 95g of net carbs per day, without gaining weight.
The beauty of this is that if any food triggers cravings, causes a tummy upset or interferes with weight loss success, it can be easily identified and then avoided.
The idea is to start with the foods you should be eating most often, and build to the foods you will be able to enjoy occasionally, depending on your individual tolerance for carbohydrates, in this order:
- Leafy greens and low-carb vegetables.
- Dairy foods high in fat and low in carbs (cream, sour cream, hard cheese).
- Nuts and seeds (not chestnuts).
- Berries, cherries, melon (not watermelon).
- Whole milk yogurt, cottage cheese and ricotta.
- Legumes (chickpeas, lentils etc).
- Tomato and vegetable juice.
- Fruit (not dried or juice), higher-carb vegetables (squash, carrots, peas).
- Whole grains (brown rice, wholemeal pasta and bread).
Carb-counting: Order a bowl of olives instead of reaching for the bread basket
NOW EATING OUT ISN'T A CHORE
One of the greatest complaints about old Atkins was dealing with restaurants and eating out. New Atkins is easier.
As long as you steer clear of refined carbohydrates in the form of white bread, white rice, anything thickened or coated in flour, deep-fried or breaded, there is a wealth of choice.
Be on guard for hidden carbohydrates: gravy is usually thickened with flour, sugar lurks in salad dressings and may even appear in coleslaw and other deli salads.
Even smaller restaurants often post their menus online, so try to decide what you're going to order before you arrive to avoid being tempted to try less suitable dishes. Select simple grilled or roasted meats or fish but avoid stews, which may contain potatoes or other starchy vegetables.
Restaurants love repeat customers, so don't hesitate to ask what's in a dish. Then specify any changes you want such as salad dressings or sauces on the side. Make a habit of asking for an additional portion of vegetables or a side salad in lieu of potatoes.
Dessert options that are allowed:
CHOCOLATE PUDDING: Whip together 2tbsp of double cream, 1tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, with sweetener and a drop of vanilla essence.
Add 1tsp of instant coffee granules for a mocha twist.
Add 1tbsp of unsweetened shredded coconut.
RASPBERRY MOUSSE: Make up a pack of sugar-free jelly and allow to partially set in the fridge, whip a cup of double cream and blend into the jelly, return to fridge to set. Serves 4.
VANILLA FREEZE: Dissolve one scoop of lowcarb vanilla protein powder in a cup of unsweetened soya milk. Add a cup of crushed ice and stir. Add sweetener if desired.
ITALIAN: Ask for a bowl of olives instead of a bread basket, then chose antipasto, salads, and any chicken, veal (such as saltimbocca or scaloppini if not breaded, floured or battered), seafood or pork dish but without the pasta, rice or polenta.
FRENCH: Choose French onion soup ( without bread topping) not vichyssoise, salad, scallops in cream sauce, steak au poivre, entrecote, Coq au Vin (minus potatoes and carrots), beef bourguignon, mussels in white wine sauce, duck a l'orange, and a cheese plate for desert. Avoid frites and crepes.
INDIAN: Opt for tandooris (meat, fish and vegetables baked in a clay oven), curries, grilled shrimp, meat, or chicken kebabs, korma, saag (spinach) and paneer (curd cheese) dishes. Avoid rice, naan, chapattis, dals, biryani dishes (they come with rice), samosas, and chutneys with added sugar.
CHINESE: Choose egg-drop soup or hot and sour soup, sizzling shrimps, steamed or stir-fried tofu with vegetables, steamed beef with Chinese mushrooms, stir-fried chicken with garlic, Peking Duck (minus the pancakes and plum sauce) but avoid the rice, noodles, sweet and sour dishes, and spring rolls.
MEXICAN: Choose salsa, guacomole, grilled chicken or fish, prawns in garlic sauce. Ask for enchiladas verdes without the tortilla or taco salad with beef or chicken minus the rice and beans and leave the tostada.
BURGER CHAINS: Chose any burger or breakfast combination minus the bun (once you remove the bun and ketchup, a Burger King Whopper goes from 51 to 3g of net carbs), or any salad (with grilled, not deep-fried chicken pieces and remove the carrot). Avoid fries, nuggets, wraps, milk shakes, and anything in breadcrumbs/batter or deep fried.
Is it hay fever- or do I have covid?
There is some crossover with the symptoms of Covid and hay fever, says Dr Kariyawasam. ‘With both you can get flu-like symptoms — and as a result some people with hay fever feel they just want to go to bed, just as those with Covid may.’
But while a high temperature is one of the defining symptoms of catching coronavirus, hay fever does not cause a fever, adds Dr Morris.
Whereas the immune response to a virus generates chemicals that cause a fever, a different part of the immune system is triggered with allergies and this does not include fever-generating chemicals.
‘With hay fever you are also not going to have a sore throat or any aberration of your sense of taste and smell,’ says Dr Morris. ‘You’re more likely to have an itchy nose, sneezing and itchy, swollen eyes.’
If your symptoms get worse after being outside, ‘that’s a strong indicator that it is hay fever’, says Dr Kariyawasam.
The good news is that some allergy-related medication may protect against Covid.
‘Pollen can go to the chest and trigger asthma,’ says Dr Kariyawasam. ‘It can trigger a cough and wheeze and bring on the asthma. If you take the steroid budesonide, it can improve your outcome with Covid,’ he says.
A study published in The Lancet last month reported that the ‘administration of inhaled budesonide reduced the likelihood of needing urgent medical care’ and reduced recovery time after Covid.
‘It seems to protect your airway from the damage that can be done by Covid — possibly as the steroid reduces inflammation [which is what causes much of the damage of Covid],’ says Dr Kariyawasam.
But a high pollen count may be something we should all be wary of because, hay fever sufferer or not, it raises your risk of Covid, according to a University of Utah School of Biological Sciences study. Researchers looked at data from 130 collection points in 31 countries and found that Covid infection rates went up as pollen levels in the air rose.
Writing in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in February, they suggested this was because inhaled pollen reduced the airways’ inflammatory immune response to viruses including coronavirus, so they were able to take hold more easily.
Your pet can get hay fever too
‘Dogs and cats can get hay fever when exposed to grass and tree pollen, just like their owners,’ says Daniella Dos Santos, senior vice president of the British Veterinary Association and a small-animal vet in Buckinghamshire.
‘Their symptoms tend to be different: the main symptom is itchy skin. Dogs with hay fever are also prone to ear infections.’
Treatments for pets include medicated drops for ear infections and medicated shampoos, antibiotics and anti-fungal treatments for skin infections from scratching, as well as medication to prevent itchiness.
Immunotherapy — giving the animal regular injections of small amounts of the pollen it is allergic to — can provide longer-term relief from itchiness.
To help you and your pet, the animal charity Blue Cross suggests wiping your dog’s fur, skin and paws with a damp cloth to remove pollen after a walk, washing bedding regularly and keeping your lawn well-mown (short grass releases less pollen).

10 Worst Foods For Pregnant Women
Shark, swordfish tilefish, and canned albacore tuna are the biggies (literally) on the list of fish to skip. Mercury accumulates over time, and because these large fish live longer, they store more mercury in their flesh, explains Sarah Krieger, MPH, RDN, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Mercury accumulates in people too, and it can hurt baby’s brain, hearing and vision, so put high-mercury fish on your “do not eat” list.
As for low-mercury fish, such as tilapia, cod, salmon, trout, catfish and shellfish, they’re actually good for you and baby. They’re excellent sources of lean protein, B-12, and zinc. And salmon, trout and mackerel are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA (which may boost baby’s brain development). But they do have some mercury in them, so keep to 12 ounces or less of them a week. Also, make sure all the fish and seafood you eat are very fresh and cooked thoroughly.
Speaking of cooking your fish, you’ve got to. That means sushi and sashimi are off limits. Some bacteria can only killed by heat and since sushi is served raw, there’s an increased likeliness for food poisoning. Some moms-to-be order rolls made of cooked fish at the sushi bar, but Krieger even recommends avoiding those, since there’s the potential for cross contamination. Choose a teriyaki or hibachi entrée instead.
Drop that ham and cheese sandwich — cold cuts (including ham, turkey, bologna and more) are actually dangerous for you and baby. And so are hot dogs. These meats can be contaminated with listeria — the only known bacterium that can survive at refrigerator temperatures of 40 degrees or less. And unlike other types of food poisoning, listeriosis, the infection caused by listeria, enters into the bloodstream directly and can reach the baby through the placenta. Listeriosis is especially scary because it can cause miscarriage. Luckily, heating foods to at least 145 degrees (165 if it’s leftovers) will kill the bacteria, so you can grill that ham sandwich and still enjoy it.
Basically, you’ll want to avoid the deli counter altogether (sorry!). The problem, Krieger says, is that you don’t know how long the foods have been in the refrigerated case, what the temperature is in there (and if it stays at a consistent 40 degrees or less), and whether all the ingredients in a salad or dish have been pasteurized. Instead, make your own potato or pasta salad, so you know exactly what you’re eating.
What to look for in cheese: pasteurization. Always check the label. While feta or mozzarella may be pasteurized, it may not be. The same goes for brie, camembert, bleu cheese, and some Mexican cheeses. If it’s fresh or homemade, like some mozzarella or a small-batch artisan cheese is, ask the person that prepared it. And when in doubt, skip it for now, says Krieger, since unpasteurized cheese can carry listeria. Go for a safer slice, like cheddar or Swiss.
They add a satisfying crunch to salad and pad Thai — and they seem super healthy — but sprouts can harbor bacteria such as salmonella, listeria and E. coli. “Any raw vegetable that swims in a pool of water in its package is at high risk for bacteria,” says Krieger. So you’ll also want to throw out a bag of lettuce if it pools in water. And, speaking of packaged salad, eat it within a day or two of opening it.
We know, you’re craving it. But, for baby’s sake, resist licking the spoon when you’re baking. When it’s unbaked, dough and batter can contain salmonella, which can cause food-borne illness. Plus, “even though some commercial cookie dough lists pasteurized eggs in the ingredients list, I don’t recommend eating raw cookie dough,” says Krieger. “It lacks nutrition.”
Out at the farmer’s market? If you’re not sure if the juice or cider is pasteurized, pass. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires warning labels on any fruit or vegetable juice that has not been pasteurized. However, the agency does not require labels for fresh-squeezed juices or cider sold by the glass (like at health-food stores, juice bars, farm stands and apple orchards). Krieger’s rule of thumb: If this fruit or veggie is juiced on the spot and consumed within an hour, it’s safe. But freshly-squeezed juices that sit around for longer than that are too risky for pregnant women to consume.
Venti-sized caffeinated drinks
While caffeine may be safe in small amounts (one to two cups of coffee per day), pregnant women with high blood pressure or anxiety should completely abstain, since the stimulant may aggravate those conditions. “The recommendations are conservative since mega amounts of caffeine during pregnancy are unknown,” adds Krieger. “We do know that erring on the side of less is best.” So if you drink more than two small cups of coffee each day, make the rest decaf.
Surprisingly, you should avoid some tea, too — even if it doesn’t have caffeine. “There are not many studies on herbs during pregnancy,” says Krieger. Go ahead and stick to decaf black, white or green tea or with familiar herbs, such as lemon verbena, mint or chamomile. But if it’s something you’re unsure of, don’t have it. And, really, avoid anything in excess during pregnancy. In other words, if you have tea, mix up the variety you’re drinking so nothing potentially harmful can accumulate in large quantities in your body.
NYC Asian woman's suspected attacker was paroled after murdering his mother, sources say
Man violently attacks Asian American woman in NYC hate crime assault
NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating after a 65-year-old Asian American woman was attacked this week in broad daylight in Manhattan.
The man accused of beating an Asian American woman during a broad-daylight hate-crime attack in New York City on Monday was on lifetime parole for murdering his mother years earlier in front of his 5-year-old sister, police and sources told Fox News.
Brandon Elliot, 38, was arrested shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday in Manhattan. He has been charged with attempted assault as a hate crime, assault as a hate crime, assault and attempted assault, police said Wednesday.
Around 11:40 a.m. Monday, Elliot is said to have attacked a 65-year-old woman on West 43rd Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues in Manhattan while she was on her way to church, police and sources had previously told Fox News.
A startling video shows a man, identified by police as Elliot, punching kicking the woman as she walks along the sidewalk, which causes her to fall to the ground. He then continues viciously kicking her in the head and body, according to the video and police.
As he continued his assault, the suspect told her: "F--- you, you don’t belong here," a source confirmed to Fox News.
The victim suffered a fractured pelvis and a contusion to the head and was taken to NYU Langone Hospital, police sources said. Authorities believed she was still in the hospital as of Wednesday morning.
Meanwhile, Elliot fled but was captured days later.
Police sources told Fox News on Wednesday that Elliot has two prior arrests. In 2000, he allegedly robbed his mother in the Bronx, where he stole jewelry and allegedly choked her, according to the New York Post. But just two years later, in 2002, he was arrested for murdering her, according to sources and records.
According to authorities, when Elliot was 19, he stabbed his 42-year-old mother three times in the chest with a knife inside their Bronx home in front of his young sister. He was charged with and convicted of second-degree murder.
A spokesperson for the Bronx District Attorney's office told Fox News that Elliot pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on March 13, 2002, and was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison.
Department of Corrections records show that Elliot served just over 16 years at the Fishkill Correctional Facility in Dutchess County, N.Y., until he was released on lifetime parole on Nov. 4, 2019. His most recent parole hearing was in March of last year.
His most recent address was listed as being just three-tenths of a mile from the crime scene, at a hotel on West 40th Street that also provides housing for the homeless, according to the Post.
Woman made up story about sexual assault in park, Lakeville police say
Lakeville police say a woman made up a story that she was sexually assaulted in a park last month.
Police said in a Facebook post this week that the department put in hundreds of hours investigating the case, including a neighborhood canvas, an extensive search of East Lake Community Park, following up on numerous tips and executing several search warrants.
Police Lt. Bill Gerl said Friday investigators concluded that the assault never happened.
“We have nothing to support what we were told that day,” he said.
The case will be forwarded to the Dakota County attorney’s office to review for possible charges against the woman, Gerl said, adding she has stopped talking with investigators.
Lakeville police sent out a news release at about 4:45 p.m. March 27 to ask for the public’s help in locating a suspect of a “violent assault” that occurred shortly after 11 a.m. in a wooded area of the park.
According to the news release, a woman in her 40s reported that she was lured to a secluded area of the park, at 16700 Pilot Knob Road, by a male who said that he needed help with someone who had fallen down. The woman went to help and was attacked by the suspect, police said.
“She was able to get free from the attacker and ran from the area to get help,” the news release read. “She was later taken to (Fairview) Ridges Hospital for evaluation of her injuries.”
The woman described the suspect as a male of unknown race wearing a black stocking cap and a black COVID-style face mask. He had on sunglasses and was also wearing a black jacket with black leather gloves, she told police.
Police said at the time that they were going to call in additional staffing and do extra patrols in the surrounding area. They encouraged the public not to go into the park alone, among other precautions.
In a Facebook post this week, Lakeville police said that after “an exhaustive investigation, it has been determined there is no threat to the community in the East Lake Park area at this time.”
The department also said in the post it wanted “to acknowledge legitimate victims of assault.”
They noted how much work was done to investigate the woman’s claim.
“The lengths Lakeville Police took to investigate the reported crime should give confidence to any victims that we always hear their voices, and we will always investigate the reported crime to the fullest,” the post read.
AND HERE'S HOW TO EAT IT
Toast sesame seeds (2 tsp) in small frying pan until golden brown. Fillet, debone and skin fish. Chop into small pieces and place in bowl. Peel ginger (1/2 thumb) and chop very fine. Pull off outer layer of two small spring onions and cut into rings. Add onions, ginger and seeds to fish. Mix with soy sauce, sesame oil and lemon juice. And it's done!

You won't believe how many kinds of fish are in Plymouth Sound
A new book being launched at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth tells the inside story of the £22.6m fishing industry .
David Pessell, managing director of Plymouth Trawler Agents describes how in 2016 his organisation sold the catches of 86 fish species from 376 fishing vessels to more than 60 registered buyers. In that year alone £17.4m worth of fish was sold in the Sutton Harbour auctions.
Sutton Harbour was at its peak in the late 19th Century, as many as 300 boats tied up at any one time and up to 500 handcarts lined up on the quay to take the catch.
Rod and line fisherman Iain Holman says: “Fishing is a way of life . for me it’s not just a job.”
But he adds that our waters are changing: “More needs to be done to protect our fish stocks so that we can all have a future in the industry and enjoy seafood for years to come.”
Plymouth’s fisheries contribute £22.6m a year to the city’s economy. The guide showcases 15 species that are rated as sustainable by the Marine Conservation Society, celebrates the city’s fishing heritage and has information for consumers on where to buy and what to look for, and recipes to encourage them to move away from the Big Five – cod, tuna, haddock, salmon and prawns.
Recipes range from “Roasted garlickly crab claws” to “Marinated Mounts bay sardines with olive oil, lemon and oregano”.
Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful sailor in Olympic history, and his wife Georgie say in a foreword that sardines on toast is their favourite dish.
The Shark Trust contributes to the book, warning that sharks and rays are more vulnerable to over-fishing than bony fish such as cod and mackerel because they are slow-growing, mature late and produce relatively few offspring.
Lauren Humphrey, Author of Sound Fish and Project Manager at the National Marine Aquarium, commented: "This publication has involved so many people in bringing it to fruition and has allowed us to build some amazing partnerships, ones that we are keen to foster going forward. The next phase will be getting the book out to the wider public. We want to remind consumers that they have the scope to drive change and what could be better than supporting our local industry and helping to safeguard our ocean resources for the future.”
Josh McCarty, Head of Marketing at the National Marine Aquarium, added: “This is an exciting step for marine awareness in Plymouth, and we are really proud at the NMA that with our partners, we can present useful and exciting recipes that can help foster behaviour change and spread Ocean Optimism.”
