Summary
Abstract: Surficial (uppermost 1-3 cm.) sediments and bottom-dwelling fish are well-
documented indicators of marine pollution conditions. The Benthic Surveillance
Project monitors contaminant levels in surficial sediments, selected
bottomfish, and fish stomach contents in nearshore waters of the United States.
Biological indicators of chemical contaminant exposure also are monitored at
