Bethanie Carney Almroth Scientific scientist advisor fShare My name is Bethanie Carney Almroth, I have a PhD in ecotoxicology,and I am a lecturer at the University of Gothenburg and I am a researcher and lecturer at the University of Gothenburg. My research focuses on how animals, mainly fish, are affected by environmental pollution. I study the effects of exposure to different classes of chemicals (for example, oil spills, sewage effluent and antifouling paint for boats), and more recently, I have studied the effects of microplastics and plastic chemicals on fish. I am driven by a love of the ocean, of fish, of nature, and by curiosity – I have always asked the questions – why? How? I love to inspire others, to expose them to the wonders of nature, but also to explain the different problems we have created, problems we need to solve. I have come to realize the extent of the damage we have caused and I am motivated by a wish to drive change and find solutions!
