"Besides altering the shape of the river and stirring up silt, there is evidence dredging can release toxic mercury locked in the riverbed, which can harm young salmon and lamprey, a jawless eel-like fish that is food for salmon as well as the Karuk, scientists say."



OMG! We should also put a stop to the spring thaw then! Friggin Mother Nature screwing with the rivers like that......



Dredges remove mercury, by the way- geniuses! :P
