Abstract or Summary
  • Past disasters such as mercury poisoning in Minimata, and new problems such as tributyltin impacts on shellfish have maintained public concern about problems caused by chronic discharges of hazardous materials into marine waters (Clark, 1986; U.S. Congress, 1987). However, hazardous chemical spills in coastal waters typically escape public attention. Unlike petroleum and its derivatives, hazardous chemicals do not blacken beaches with tar or soil the plumage of marine birds. Often, these spills leave no unsightly sheen on the water. They may not involve large volumes or materials with recognizable names. Therefore, while hazardous material spills can and have caused severe damage to marine natural resources and human amenities, the continual pulse of oil spills over the past few decades has garnered the attention of the public, scientists, and water quality managers.
