The third paper of the potential issues of the presence of Atlantic salmon in the Pacific Northwest environment concerns the use of copper and zinc in net-pen farming. In particular, it reviews the presence of heavy metals in the water and sediments near net-pen farms. The review ends with some conclusions on the varying degrees of risk from these metals.
