Following a publication made by our University, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, about our work on the effect of light pollution on fish in Oslo fjord and Akerselva (the river in Oslo), several medias have published an article on their websites.
This week, NMBU a published an article on our work and findings on its website that can be found here. We revealed that we found unexpected high levels of light pollution in Oslo areas. During nighttime, we could detect light in some place, up to 5 meters underwater! In other places, the intensity of light in the water was as high as it can be found in walking areas in the street under streetlights!
Also, experiments performed in the laboratory on a model fish, the japanese ricefish, demonstrate that light pollution affect fish reproduction.
