Swimming in a Sea of Chemicals: Smoked Salmon or the Smoking Gun?

The old adage that the solution to pollution is dilution still holds true today. Thousands of chemicals are released into the environment, deliberately or accidentally, by humans, and many are found in measurable levels in water, air, land, wildlife and people. Because of unprecedented human population growth, environmental pollution is expected to increase, and the contributions of chemical pollution to wildlife declines is a grave concern. Taking Pacific salmonids as our starting point, we’ll discuss the major classes of chemical contaminants attracting attention around the world, and look at progressive solutions that may help combat pollution.
