ABSTRACT:
Fish hatcheries are an important tool in the Fish and Wildlife Service's efforts to restore threatened and endangered aquatic species. Unfortunately, these facilities sometimes face the same contaminant risks encountered by commercial hatcheries. When such issues are identified, the Service’s Division of Environmental Quality and its environmental contaminants specialists—who have expertise in sampling and analytical methods, ecotoxicology, and risk assessment— are uniquely poised to help.
