Changes in cellular structure in Antarctic Rock-cod signified biological impact of untreated human wastewater on the marine ecosystem at Davis Station, East Antarctica. Based on these alterations a Histological Health Index was developed to identify and compare changes in fish health correlated to the degree of wastewater exposure. The health index provides a risk assessment tool applicable for all Antarctic Treaty research stations.
