New Research: Half of Saltwater Aquarium Fish in U.S. Exposed to Cyanide as Part of Capture for Pet Trade

Pressemeldung, 16.06.2016 – More than 50 percent of saltwater aquarium fish tested after purchase from US retailers and wholesalers showed signs of exposure to cyanide, a fishing technique that’s decimating coral reefs, according to a new study. The findings by the non-profit For the Fishes and the research institute Haereticus Environmental Laboratory come amid new concerns over increased sales of royal blue tang and other tropical fish following Disney/Pixar’s release of its new film Finding Dory.
