14.11.2018 | What does the choice of our toothpaste have to do with the quality of the fish sandwich from the corner shop? On Thursday, November 22 at 8:30 pm, Carolin Müller, PhD candidate at ZMT, will shed light on this issue and other questions in relation to fish and plastic pollution in our oceans. As part of the successful Science Goes Pub(lic) series, she will give a German-language talk titled “Darf's ein bisschen Mee(h)r sein - von kleinen Fischen und noch kleineren Kunststoffen”. Everyone is welcome, entry is free!
The Science Goes Pub(lic)! series takes place twice a year and is aimed at the general public. Research topics are presented in a varied and humorous 30-minute talks in selected pubs and bars in Bremerhaven and Bremen. This is followed by an exchange or direct discussion between the audience and the scientists.
On the occasion of its tenth anniversary as the "City of Science" in 2015, Bremerhaven and later Bremen took the opportunity to introduce a new event format in the spirit of a "public understanding of science" and to bring science and researchers to locations where the people can be found in their everyday live: the pub. The events in Bremen are organised by the Science Communication Network, which is made up of various scientific institutions, including the ZMT.

What the choice of our toothpaste might have to do with the quality of the fish sandwich from the corner shop? Are young fish similarly picky when it comes to food as children sometimes are – together with the audience Carolin Müller wants to get to the bottom of these and other questions. The PhD candidate from the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) is investigating the growth of young fish in the Atlantic Ocean. On November 22, she describes everyday life at the fish kindergarten in a sea full of plastic.
