Fish Tissue Sampling

Posted on Wednesday January 27, 2016

On September 10, 2015, the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) issued a statement which indicated that they agree with CN’s opinion that concentrations of oil components in the fish in Minisinakwa Lake do not pose an unacceptable risk to human or wildlife health based on the data submitted and the analyses outlined within CN’s summary letter report.

The MOECC is currently analyzing the fish collected by CN during the sediment removal activities as well as 40 fish samples collected during the fish netting program conducted by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry in October 2015.  The results of the fish sample analyses are expected at some point in early 2016.
