As promised on my Facebook page weekly update at https://www.facebook.com/tinaportman.science/  Here are some links to some of my research into fish deformities in the Elk River. I’m looking into whether it’s actually OK to publish an entire email chain, so in the meantime here’s this:

Link to Master’s Thesis with reference to missing gill plates in the Elk River (pp 105-107): Sportfish Population Dynamics In An Intensively Managed River System or pdf link here: Sportfish Population Dynamics In An Intensively Managed River System

And, so you know what it looks like, a blog post by an angler with a photo of a WCT from the Elk missing a gill cover: http://unaccomplishedangler.com/2014/10/fishing-for-gold-in-coal-country-day-two/
