dc.description.abstractSixteen species (2 molluscs, 2 crustaceans, and 12 fishes) were used as biological monitors in flow-through aquaria from October 9, 1977 to June 30, 1979. The aquaria received effluent from Houston Lighting & Power Company's Cedar Bayou Generating Station located east of Baytown, Texas, in Chambers County. Growth and survival of organisms were monitored in ambient and thermally regulated water (20, 25, and 30 C). The weight-gain experiments were run for 2 weeks. The short period of this study may have prevented differences from being expressed.en_US
