As scientists and environmentalists race to find answers, pressure has been growing on Alaska's fishing industry to suspend most of its pollock fishing, on the suspicion that it is robbing Steller's sea lions of an important source of food. But new research illustrated in this film shows that a broad combination of factors could be responsible for the sea lions' plight.
