- Did PCB's Save the Stripers? A Fish Story: New York Times article about the fact that striped bass are thriving in the Hudson River because PCBs deter fishing, even though PCBs actually are harmful to the fish. However, fish in Newark Harbor have adapted to contaminants. [Requires free registration.]
