Dr. Yingling: RAGE ON!
For those that haven't been following the recent ruckus about the black splotches on smallmouth bass - the premier gamefish of the Susquehanna River - read this.
After reading the article, I'm sure you'll walk away with multiple questions. Mine is simply this: If Dr. Mangan states, multiple times, that he doesn't really know what's causing this outbreak, how can he state that the activities of the natural gas industry are not connected in any way? Or that the affected fish are safe to eat?
Read Dr. William Yingling's comments.
Read Dr. Brian Mangan's comments.
Decide for yourself: Do we have a problem in the Susquehanna River, and is it getting worse?
As for me, I practice catch and release, so I don't eat any fish from the Susquehanna River. But I do eat mayflies from time to time.
The dark ones taste fishy.
