For anyone who has wondered, “Are There Mer-shrooms?”

Terrestrial fungi are the ones that create the beautiful, delicious mushrooms we know and love, and their spores surround us in the air. But could there be a place for fungi under the water? In this episode, Izzie discusses what we know and don’t know about underwater fungi, and the role they play – for the ocean and for humanity – and sits down with Darlene Southworth to talk about a surprising fungus living in the swift current of the Rogue River.
