Abstract
  • The Alumax Pacific Aluminum Corporation has proposed construction of an aluminum reduction facility near Youngs Bay at Warrenton, Oregon. This report comprises one part of the final report to Alumax on a research project entitled, "Physical, Chemical and Biological Studies of Youngs Bay." It presents data pertaining to the potential biological effects of fluoride and sulfur dioxide, two potentially hazardous plant-stack emissions, on selected aquatic species of the area. Companion volumes provide a description of the physical characteristics (Boley et al., 1975), the geochemistry, (Johnson and Cutshall, 1975), and the aquatic animals present in Youngs Bay and adjacent ecosystems (Higley and Holton, 1975). An introductory volume provides general information and maps of the area, and summarizes the conclusions of all four studies (Slotta, Cutshall, and Holton, 1975). The primary objective of the biological effects study was to determine the effects of fluoride on selected estuarine organisms, including 1) determination of the levels of fluoride in the marine ecosystem that will prove toxic to important sport and commercial species or important species in their food chains; 2) examination of sublethal effects that fluorides added to the marine ecosystem will have on sport, commercial or foodchain species; 3) determination of the effect of fluorides on the rate of carbon fixation in phytoplankton.
