Swordfish Ban Lifted

Jacki talks to Vikki Spruill, executive director of the environmental group Seaweb, about the group's decision to release chefs from their pledge to not serve swordfish. Due to the recent dwindling of the swordfish population, dropping to alarming levels, environmental groups spent the past two years convincing more than 700 chefs to take swordfish off their menus. Spruill explains why the ban has been lifted.
