Lesions on bullhead in Lake Memphremagog raise concerns - Newport Dispatch

30% of bullhead pulled from Lake Memphremagog have ugly, black tumors. What’s going on?

“This cancer occurrence cluster is raising questions about the cause of the tumors and the implications for the long-term health of fish populations. Studies suggest that tumor development is likely associated with multiple environmental and genetic factors, and study designs are being developed to test these hypotheses. Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) Secretary Julie Moore is going to hold a public discussion on Tuesday, March 17, from 4 to 5 p.m. to discuss a variety of environmental topics, including a discussion on the Lake Memphremagog brown bullhead lesion investigation."
