Charleston Gazette photo by Chris Dorst ABOVE: U.S. Geological Survey biologist Cassidy Hahn removes a tissue sample from a redhorse sucker netted in the Elk River as part of a survey being conducted on fish health in the Elk after January’s chemical leak from Freedom Industries. Previous surveys, including a visual one immediately following the leak and a June survey of mussel beds, found nothing abnormal, state Division of Natural Resources officials said last week.
