Dozens of sea lions sickened by domoic acid poisoning

The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito said it has been treating and releasing dozens of sea lions that had been affected by an outbreak of domoic acid poisoning.

The center posted a video of one sea lion being released after receiving treatment.

Domoic acid poisoning happens when the sea lions eat fish that have the naturally occurring neurotoxin.

The sea lions that get sick appear disorient and some even suffer seizures.
