Scientist Finds "Really Big Difference" in Fish Near Oil Sands Compared to Elsewhere | One River News

After heading the foremost fish study in the Athabasca and Slave River systems over the past several years, Dr. Paul Jones said the trends he is seeing in contaminants are not just petrochemical in nature, but likely caused by the oilsands industry.
Jones, whose University of Saskatchewan research is part of ongoing community-based monitoring efforts on the Slave River, recently gave an update on the study that has been looking at fish health from Fort McMurray, Alta. to Fort Resolution, NWT since 2011.
While across the board, fish – especially those in the Slave River – appear to be healthy for the most part, Jones said definite trends in even the low levels of contaminants found within fish show higher concentrations in those caught around Fort McMurray with those numbers falling as you go northward.
