The National Status and Trends (NS&T) Program of the National Ocean Service conducts multi-year bioeffects assessment studies in selected coastal areas where the NS&T monitoring data indicate moderate-to-high levels of contaminants. Bottomfish are examined for the presence of tumors and lesions, signs of reproductive impairment, signs of genetic damage, and more.
Biological effects publications are available upon request - contact the Office of Ocean Resources, Conservation and Assessment (ORCA) for more information. Information on ORCA publications can also be obtained at their World Wide Web site. Information on the Biological Effects Surveys and Research can also be found at EPA's web site at http://www.epa.gov/cesssi96/ces/guide/prog(16).htm.
