For oysters, "The objective of these studies was to determine the biological feasibility of using the heated effluent from coastal nuclear power plants for culturing the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas." (p.1) Work included oyster growth experiments, seasonal growth experiments and closed system studies. For salmon, "The objective of these studies was to determine the biological feasibility of using the heated effluent from coastal nuclear power plants for culturing chum salmon, Oncorhynchus keta, and, to a lesser extent, pink salmon 0. gorbuscha." (p.3) Work included temperature vs. growth experiments, temperature x ration factorial experiments, and disease control studies.
