  • Story:

    In 2004, a team of researchers published a study of contaminants in farmed salmon. Fish from many sources were analyzed for 14 organic contaminants. The study
    expressed concerns about the level of contaminants found. One of those was the
    insecticide mirex, which has been shown to be carcinogenic and is suspected to be
    toxic to the liver, kidneys, and endocrine system. The dataset holds 153 observed salmon samples and reports concentrations of a number of contaminant.
