Conservation Council Concerned Over Pesticides

June 14, 2009

The Conservation Council is looking to raise awareness about a pesticide about to be used in the Bay of Fundy to control sea lice.Spokesperson Dave Thompson tells CHSJ News, previous pesticides used are not doing the trick anymore, so stronger ones need to be used.
