Wyden’s investigation into fish contamination is an important step – NewsNaija.com.ng

I’m pretty used to reading headlines detailing the latest health issues plaguing our freshwater fish. He comes with the territory as an ecotoxicologist working on the health of North America’s relatively abundant, but certainly not infinite, freshwater supplies.

However, I was struck by the recent announcement that Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), along with other state and federal legislators, is calling for an investigation into the toxic contamination of salmon in the Pacific Northwest. It fits into a larger question about salmon health that has had my community in an uproar for the past few years.
