Study Up For 'Think': On Point With The Mightiest Fish

Writer and painter Richard Ellis wants to save the ocean one species at a time. He's trying to do this by profiling wonders of the sea like the swordfish, which zips through the ocean at 60 miles per hour even though it weighs as much as 700 pounds. Ellis talks to Think host Krys Boyd at 1 p.m.

See a series of Ellis' paintings in the slideshow here. You can see more in his book Swordfish: A Biography Of The Ocean Gladiator.

Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1. You can stream the show at

Lyndsay Knecht is assistant producer for Think.
