Benjamin Kahn (born 1955) is an Israeli marine biologist. He has been fighting for the survival of the Red Sea reef, which began dying when giant fish farms were built in 1997, and the cages were spewing tons of uneaten food and excrement onto the reef. Kahn appeared on Time Magazine's list of "Heroes of the Environment" October 2007.[1] Kahn's work has been done largely through Zalul Environmental Association, an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the seas and rivers in Israel.[2]
