Tracking in Chicago River offers interesting look at fish movement

One bluegill in the Chicago River regularly makes an 8.7-mile trek in a period of about 18 hours.
“He’s done it five times,” said Austin Happel, research biologist at the John G. Shedd Aquarium, who is leading a multiagency study that is tracking species in the Illinois river. “It’s really interesting to see such a little fish make such a huge journey many times, back and forth, while other bluegills in various parts of the waterway are basically staying put.”

Lake Michigan study finds PFAS in every fish species sampled

When it comes to PFAS, scientists have found these “forever chemicals” in soil, water, and air in sites around the country and the world. 
Now, researchers have found PFAS in every Lake Michigan fish they sampled and a particularly toxic form of PFAS in most of the lake’s sportfish. PFAS is short for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, which encompass thousands of compounds that don’t break down in the environment. They are used in many everyday items like nonstick cookware, water- or stain-resistant clothing or carpeting, cosmetics, and even toilet paper.
