Researchers from a Swiss university found plastic particulate is widespread in Lake Geneva, according to a press release from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
The researchers sampled the lake in several ways to quantify microplastic pollution. Every sample taken for the study, whether from bird droppings, fish dissection, beach combing or a net drag had plastic particles in it.
No quantity of just how much plastic is in the lake was given in the release. Further studies will evaluate plastic content of lakes and rivers across Switzerland.Read More
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission ’s Inland Fisheries Division has been working to restore brook trout in the state. Coldwater research coordinator Jacob Rash, who works with the brook trout team technicians on this project, spoke to EM about the work.
“In North Carolina, brook trout are our only native trout species,” explains Mr. Rash. “With that come biological and ecological considerations as well as cultural importance. A lot of folks here grew up fishing for brook trout with their relatives, so it's an important species that we work to try to conserve. We've done quite a bit of work to figure out where those brook trout populations are and what they are, in terms of genetics.Read More
Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates.
Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing.
EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.Read More
