  • Salmon habitat degradation is widely considered a major cause of salmon declines; yet, the influence of chemical contamination is poorly understood.
  • The study will address the impact of sublethal toxic insult at the population scale on Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha) in the lower Duwamish Waterway.
