Tony began his work at NOAA in 1987 trying to understand the impacts of contaminants, especially toxins, on aquatic ecosystems. Recently, he has been working on a number of projects in the Caribbean to better understand whether pollution, and more specifically chemical contamination, is contributing to the decline in coral reef ecosystem health in the Caribbean and elsewhere.
