Mink Injury Assessment - Hudson River Natural Resource Damage Assessment

Date Posted: October 3, 2006

The Hudson River Natural Resource Trustees have released the Final Study Plan for Mink Injury Investigations for the Hudson River. This Final Study Plan describes a mink PCB-feeding laboratory study the Trustees will initiate this year to evaluate whether mink reproduction and/or development is affected as a result of exposure to PCBs from the Hudson River. In the future the Trustees may propose additional work to supplement this effort.
