EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The overall objectives of the program were broad, as indicated below. The project was a "first" from several aspects with problems arising mainly in the analytical measurement of hydrocarbons in tissue and in establishing a method of representative exposure of the test species. These problems were addressed in the course of the investigations.

Objectives of the program were the following:

•To determine the acute lethal effects of various oils on representative marine species. This involved establishing

- criteria for selection of species,

- adequacy of the bioassay system.

•To determine sublethal and chronic effects of oil. This entailed experiments based on

- chronic exposure of embryonic and larval life stages,

- accumulation of hydrocarbons in tissue and their rate of purging after exposure.
