To further evaluate the suitability of small fish species for sentinel monitoring, a comparison was made between the responses of trout-perch (Percopsis omiscomaycus) and the larger white sucker (Catostomus commersoni) under similar conditions of pulp mill effluent exposure and mobility. Fish were collected upstream and downstream of a thermomechanical pulp mill on the Kapuskasing River, Ontario, Canada, where the presence of a hydro dam restricts the movement of fish between reference and… CONTINUE READING
