    Fish biologist Dr. Jeff Fryer was kind enough to send a couple of corrections; had I been in less of a hurry, I would have sent it past him for review before posting.
    Most important, at 9:10 I said at 0.2 ppm salmon didn't refuse to choose any more than the control fish: in fact, 54% failed to make a choice, significantly more than the controls. So, while D & D proposed 0.2 ppm as a max threshold, in fact there is still harm at that level - so dilution below .2 doesn't necessarily make it safe.  [SIDEBAR:  Comments posted below the video on the above weblink offer more Portland info]
