Aquaculture Chemicals are Polluting Chilean Rivers
After previous studies showed dirty, sediment filled waters were harming Chilean rivers, regulators forced aquaculture operations to do a better job of filtering and cleaning their waste water.

Most fish farms draw water from clean Chilean rivers and return the waste water downstream. New rules have ensured that wastewater is now much less turbid, but new research shows many chemicals -- the remnants of fish and food waste, as well as antibiotics and disinfectants -- still bypass the installed filters.

Analysis, detailed in the journal Scientific Reports, showed aquaculture wastewater significantly increases the concentrations of carbohydrates and proteins -- as well as their more basic chemical building blocks -- into the river.

Marine Plastic May Affect Growth Rates and Health of Fish - Despite the fact that plastic pollution is a relatively recent phenomena, the problem has reached the far corners of the global oceans. Most of the obvious plastic pollution is inshore, such as those seen on beaches and intertidal area, but most of the plastic is out of sight in remote locations.
