The study details research on potential for trout to uptake sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) residues following an aerial operation. Brown trout were caught from the Travers River in the Nelson Lakes area 6 days after the operation. None of the 19 trout sampled and tested had levels of monofluoroacetate above the limit of quantification. This study advances the understanding that trout are unlikely to present a food safety risk if eaten after an aerial 1080 baiting operation.
