Chemical Analysis

Chemical analysis for the GLFMSP is conducted through a cooperative agreement with Clarkson University. In 2015, EPA awarded Clarkson a grant to continue monitoring Great Lakes fish for contamination from legacy pollutants such as PCBs and banned pesticides and from emerging chemicals of concern. For more information about the chemical analysis, contact Dr. Thomas M.
