Fish to be tested along the Indian River inlet

The Center for Inland Bays wants a study done on the fish that come from the Indian River power plant.

An advisory committee has been set up.  The goal is to see if the fish near there carry higher levels of carcinogens.  The study probably won’t take place until the group’s fiscal year starts on October 1.  The head of the group hopes they don’t find anything, but if they do the group plans to present their findings to DNREC.
