"1080 solutions prepared in distilled water and stored at room temperature for 10 years showed no significant breakdown; moreover, solutions of 1080 prepared in stagnant algal-laden water did not lose biocidal properties during 12 months (McIlroy 1981a). More research on 1080 persistence in aquatic environments seems needed."

This reference was requested by proponents of 1080, on this blog.
Department of Conservation employeee, Ian Gill, has said he will provide the evidence that 1080 - monoflurouactetate - is present in the tea we buy off supermarket shelves. He has said he will provide this evidence this week. DoC, and their apologists, continue to assert that 1080 is present in tea. So it was good of Ian to offer to provide this evidence, as we have been unable to find it. Thanks Ian, much appreciated.
