"Cocaine and ketamine in the uk shrimp"
"When british scientists examined samples of shrimp fished out of various bodies of water in a uk rural area, they found that every single shrimp had traces of cocaine in and of itself. In a large proportion of the prawns, there was ketamine."
"the Samples were taken from 15 different sötvattendrag in the countryside, in the county of Suffolk in the east of England. The study was conducted by researchers at King's College London and the University of Suffolk and it is published in the scientific journal Environment International."
" Whether the presence of cocaine in aquatic animals is a matter for Suffolk or something that occurs on a broader front in the Uk and abroad requires further research, says Nic Bury from the University of Suffolk."
"The shrimp, it was also found traces of pesticides and pharmaceuticals."
"research leader Thomas Miller from King's College says that the concentration of the drug in the shrimps was low, but yet that it can pose a risk to wildlife."
"in the Past, other studies found that fish in urban streams, as in the river Thames in London, in large quantities of illegal drugs. That shrimp far out in the countryside also tests positive is all the more surprising, say the researchers behind the räkstudien."
