Because the North Shore has a rich marine ecosystem, as well as a marine dependent economy, it is important to study the ways in which this environment is being affected by human actions. Using a fish and line fishing practice, we are looking to find fish that may be ingesting pollutants. We examine the contents of these fish's stomachs in order to determine the risks that they are facing and determining the ways that they can be prevented.
