Today’s Video of the Day comes from the University of California, San Diego and features a look at how warming ocean waters will impact sushi menus.

But as ocean temperatures increase and acidify due to climate change, red sea urchins are under threat. But luckily, scientists have discovered a possible replacement source of uni.
