Did you know that a jellyfish has helped win a Nobel prize? Or that there’s a 60-meter long, poisonous worm in the ocean, right underneath the surface? Pia Ve Dahlen, marine biologist and science communicator dives into how curiosity for the weird and wonderful creatures in the ocean is vital for the future.
