The ability of mussels to concentrate contaminants from the seawater makes them useful for monitoring coastal ecosystems for pollutants. Learn more about how we can evaluate the ways oil, dispersant, and dispersed oil affect different aspects of bay mussel health.Read More Northern Exposures: Contaminants, Science and Toxicology
