Impact of Water Contamination on Fish and Aquatic Organisms
Pesticides that contaminate water can harm the aquatic ecosystem (fish, insectlarvae, and plant life). Most pesticides will harm aquatic communities. Applicators must check the pesticide label for warnings that the pesticide is toxic to fish. Some pesticides are more toxic to aquatic life than they are to humans and land animals. Those who damage fish or fish habitat using pesticides may be prosecuted under provincial law orthe federal Fisheries Act.
