Healthy Marine Harvest

Healthy Marine Harvest

Traditional owners are concerned about the safety of eating shellfish collected near sewage outfalls in Darwin Harbour. This study will analyse metal levels and microbial populations in shellfish collected near sewage outfalls and industrial areas compared to samples collected from reference locations. This has significant implications for the health of the people using these animals as a food source.
