One Scud, Two Scud, Red Scud, Dead Scud

I set out on this project to find the effects of the chemical Irgasan(triclosan) on the aquatic animal the scud. I was looking for either changes in behavior or differences in mortality rates. The results were astounding, the behaviors greatly deteriorated and the mortality rates skyrocketed. This could prove to be fatal for not only the scuds but any creature in the water that can't tolerate pollutants.
