Thursday, 19 October 2017 - 8:30am to 9:00am

This week, marine scientist Sophie Burgess tells us everything we want to know about scallops and how to predict their population, and microbiologist Tim Stinear explains why we shouldn't panic about Mycobacterium ulcerans, aka the flesh-eating bacteria that's causing Buruli ulcers on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, but how you can protect yourself nevertheless.
