dredging and salmon

Dredging doesn’t harm fish, experts sayBy Article Admin on 3/28/2012 4:21 PM

Suction dredge mining does not harm fish and can actually improve fish habitat, scientists say. Claudia Wise and Joseph Greene, worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for more than 30 years. Wise is a retired physical scientist and Greene is a retired research biologist. Both scientists have done extensive research on the issue and cannot find any evidence to substantiate claims made by environmental activists that suction dredging harms fish or fish habitat. They say suction dredging can benefit salmon and other species of fish by improving habitat in rivers and streams. Forum Index -> General
