Cancer risk to fish greatest from pollution pulses

The highest cancer risk to fish from polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) occurs as a result of peak exposures, new research has shown. The results suggest that low-level background exposure is much less important, and monitoring needs to include measurements of peak levels of pollution after accidents to understand the impact on aquatic life.
