Cleaning chemicals used in cleaning tools for catfish have been discovered, and the use of many of the chemicals could have a detrimental effect on the environment, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
In a new study, researchers at the U-M Department of Chemistry and the Center for Environmental Science and Technology found that the number of different cleaning products used for catfishes has increased over the last few decades.
The researchers found that some of the cleaning products they tested had the potential to damage the ocean ecosystem.
The study was conducted on 10 different cleaning tools and was published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.
The research team included a team of researchers from the UM Department to study the environmental impacts of different types of cleaning products, such as fish cleaning products.
The study focused on the use and environmental impact of different kinds of cleaning chemicals, including sodium chlorite (sacs), sodium chlorate (saxone), sodium chloride (sace), sodium hydroxide (saltwater) and sodium hydrate (sodium chloride).
Sodium chlorite, which is used to clean fish, is a common cleaning agent in many cleaning products for fish.
It has been linked to a wide range of adverse effects on fish and other aquatic life, including reduced oxygen levels, increased oxygen uptake, and altered metabolism, according a statement from the Fish and Game Research Institute.
Saxone is a salt water-based cleaner used to remove salt deposits from water, and is used for fish, fish larvae, and other organisms.
Sodium hydroxides are used to clear water of organic matter and organic particles.
Sulfuric acid, also used in a variety of cleaning and sanitizing products, is used as a preservative in the process of cleaning, according the Fish & Game Research institute.
