Benjamin Gallimore

Ben Gallimore is working with Dr. George Argyros to study ways to use fish as tracers of fecal coliform bacteria.  Ben describes his project like this, “I am testing to see if fish inhabiting water systems that cattle have access too and water systems that cattle are excluded from would have traces of fecal coliform bacteria in their epithelial mucosa. This research could be helpful in determining the water quality of various watersheds. It could also help prevent diseases and various health risks if contamination is confirmed and treated.”
