Current and Recent Research Projects

"To assess the relevance and sensitivity of the current mandated Environment Canada Acute Lethal Rainbow Trout Toxicity Test's ability to protect coldwater fishes from environmental contaminants under non-standard conditions, Dana Moore has conducted a series of 400+ 96-hour acute lethality tests to characterize the relative sensitivity of 6 coldwater species to 18 common mine-effluent contaminants under 3 different temperatures and 3 different water hardness levels. Commissioned by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Environment Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Environment and an association of Northern mining companies, the results of these tests will be used to assess and ammend the current aquatic effluent release guidelines for Northern areas. Moore is currently following up this study with a chronic uptake and depuration study for a selection of the test species, contaminants, and environmental conditions."
