Abstract
In February 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Northeast Region, for an evaluation of formaldehyde and methanol exposure at fish hatcheries where eggs are treated with formalin to control infection by Saprolegniaceae fungi. Although no health problems or concerns had been reported by fish hatchery employees, the USFWS was interested in assessing the potential for employee exposure to formalin while using manual and automated treatment systems at hatcheries throughout the Northeast Region.
