Title: Presence of emerging pollutants in surrounding waters of Bamfield, British Columbia, Canada
Author: Salemme, Keri
Abstract: Research was conducted in Barkley Sound, British Columbia, to determine if pollutants are present in the waters of British Columbia, specifically around fish pen locations. Within the samples pesticides, hormones, musks, and antibiotics were found. Thymol, a pesticide, was the most common amongst all stations along with all four of the hormone compounds found near fish pen stations. Overall more natural emerging pollutants were found than man-made pollutants within Barkley sound, concluding that Barkley Sound is a reasonably clean water area.
