What are the REAL problems in the dying Indian River Lagoon? Where do we go from here? Once the 'muck' is removed, what next? What's the real situation? Is the science 'in' yet? If not, what's missing? Can this world-class, great bio-diverse estuary with a regional impact of almost $3,800,000,000. every year to the lagoon region -- can this dying lagoon recover from decades of abuse? What do we know? And what don't we know? And what are we going to do about it? Discussion and Q+A from the audience.
