Abstract or Summary
  • The main purpose of this report was to draw together in one place, for the first time, all available information on trace contaminant levels in sediment, water, and biota from Oregon in the hope that sufficient data could be gathered to identify statistically significant geographic and temporal trends within the state. A secondary purpose was to begin the process of answering the question "Of what biological importance are these observed levels of contamination?" Some indication as to the relative ecological importance or impact of contamination is desired. Because essentially no information on pathological manifestations of pollution stress in Oregon was encountered, this latter goal was addressed by comparison between observed contaminant levels in Oregon and appropriate Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) criteria, and by comparison with levels observed in areas of known contamination or with results of laboratory bioassay studies.
