NOAA Photo Library Image - fish0285

Collection of mummichog from a Rhode Island salt pond six months after an oil spill washed into the pond. This salt pond was also a wildlife refuge, so canoes and traps were used to collect fish, rather than powerboats and trawls. Lawrence Chicelly (NOAA Corp) assisted NWFSC scientists with fish collections to examine fish health and contaminant exposure.
