NW Council Independent Science Advisory Board Report - Toxic Pollutants and Food Webs

Interesting Section on Toxic Pollutants and Food Webs
Stable and resilient food webs, and the persistence of native species
over time, are key components of a healthy Columbia River ecosystem. In
a sustainable system, food webs are the foundation for many commercial,
recreational, human health and aesthetic
ecosystem services. The health of species and food webs depends upon
habitat conditions, water quality and quantity, and appropriate
management (including harvest, prevention and control of disease and
control of deleterious exotic species; Puget Sound Partnership 2010)."
