Re: Environmental impact of Zinc/Magnesium Anodes
Actually zinc is quite toxic to marine life, right up there with copper. At 0.5 ppm everything dies. That is why it is used as a biocide in paints and it's part of why zincs stay clean. However, the area of zincs compared to boat bottoms is pretty small.
