|Abstract: ||The problem of lead poisoning resulting from the use of lead shot in hunting waterbirds and shooting sports has led to the partial ban, voluntary restriction and complete ban of lead shot in some countries. The ban resulted in the alternatives like copper shot, tungsten-tin shot, bismuth-tin, steel shot, etc. These alternatives are still expensive and other possible alternatives have not been explored up to date. There is therefore need to ban lead shot world-wide and step up research into the alternatives (green shot).|
