ONE HEALTH - FISH MONITORING

ORCA’s One Health program is focused on studying the transfer of toxins from the Indian River Lagoon to humans and animals.

One way we do this is by testing fish from the Indian River Lagoon and surrounding waterways for cyanotoxins (the toxin produced by blue-green algae), plastics, and anthropogenic chemicals (e.g. glyphosate, pharmaceutical and personal care products).

 

One Health Citizen Scientists assist in collecting fish from the Indian River Lagoon and surrounding waterways, as well as processing and analyzing samples in the lab at ORCA’s Center for Citizen Science.
