Research interests

Water pollution occurs when undesirable foreign substances are introduced into natural water. The substances may be chemical or biological in nature. Fish are excellent subjects for the study of various effects of contaminants present in water samples since they can metabolize, concentrate, and store waterborne pollutants. Salmonids are very sensitive to water pollutions and sensitivity may vary during the different stages of their lives. My current research focuses on the study of the effects of chemical pollution on salmonids.
