Assessment of pesticide effects on aquatic organisms in Lake Saint-Pierre is underway

Our scientists are assessing the effects of pesticides and changes in agricultural practices on fish and invertebrates.

To this end, water samples have been collected, and fish, mussels and amphipods have been analyzed. The results will contribute to the understanding of the impacts of agricultural activities on the St. Lawrence ecosystem and to improving its environmental management.
