To discover whether the prevalences of tumors and other lesions in brown bullhead (Ameiurus nebulosus) in these lakes, particularly Ashumet Pond, were elevated above normal, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), assisted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MADFW), conducted The Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) has been a military base on western Cape Cod since the early s. Contaminated surface water and ground water from the MMR have discharged into several kettle lakes on or near the base.

One of the beneficial use impairments (BUI) at Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOC) is “fish tumors or other deformities,” defined as occurring when “the incidence rate of fish tumors or other deformities exceeds rates at unimpacted or control sites or when survey data confirm the presence of neoplastic or preneoplastic liver tumors in bullhead or suckers” (International Fish and wildlife populations have been dramatically affected by environmental pollutants. One of the best-known examples is the response of wildlife populations to the use of persistent organochlorine pesticides and industrial chemicals (e.g., DDT and PCBs). Rachel Carson's book, Silent Spring, alerted most of the general public to the serious threats that organochlorine compounds posed ?report=reader. By combining years and sites the prevalence of orocutaneous tumors in bullhead (age 2–12 years) at inland lakes was %, at Long Point Inner Bay was %, at other bays and harbors was %
