Abstract

This proposal is in reply to REFP No. DACW 39-76-R0025, for a simple, adaptable bioassay technique which can be used to evaluate the potential for toxicity that a proposed dredging activity may produce. The research has been done to establish the requirements for such a bioassay. Bioassay, zooplankton culture, the Elutriate Test, and the other aspects of previous research to be understood in formulating the best bioassy techniques will be discussed with emphasis on the problem areas which place constraints on formulating an Elutriate Bioassay.
