Deborah Swackhamer addresses how the presence of contaminants play a role in wildlife reproduction.
"There is significant evidence that contaminants contribute to a lack of reproduction in the lakes," said Deborah Swackhamer, co-director of the University of Minnesota's Water Resources Center. "PCBs and dioxin are going down in Lake Ontario and contaminants are going down in Superior, and you're seeing more successful lake trout reproduction in these lakes."
