Gowanus Canal Backgrounds - Life in the Gowanus

The Gowanus Canal was not always polluted. You can't really tell if it has life in or on it, but guess what, it does! The Gowanus Canal was once clean and had alot of life on, but to look at it now and you would feel bad for the critters that are still there. The life that is on the Gowanus Canal includes fish, ducks, birds and more. Though there were birds there weren't many fish. We know this because Urban Divers has put out minnow traps and when we checked them there were no fish at all. The Gowanus Canal also has lots of algae.
