Copper and Salmon: A Toxic Mix on Toxnot.com

Copper negatively impacts many forms of aquatic life, and NGC is currently assessing alternatives to copper-based boat paint.  We have partnered with toxnot.com to crowdfunding chemical hazard assessments.  We are currently requesting funds to generate QCATs (Quick Chemical Assessment Tool) of two chemicals commonly used in copper-free boat paints.  Both chemicals have diverse uses outside of the antifouling boat paint industry as well. Backing this project allows more alternative chemicals to be evaluated, leading to better boat paint options that still keep our fish and water safe
