Epizootics of skin neoplasms in teleost species have been documented within the Great Lakes region over the last decade. The white sucker,Catostomus commersoni, has been proposed as a sentinel species to monitor environmental health in these systems. The prevalence of skin neoplasia is elevated in white suckers and other fish taken from chemically polluted sites or from lake regions adjacent to heavy industry.
