Abstract Three fish species, Cyprinodon variegatus, Fundulus similis, and Menidia menidia, were evaluated to determine which is most suitable as a bioassay organism for solid phase testing of dredged material. Acute toxicity and bioaccumulation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were monitored for 52 days of exposure to two types of dredged material collected from the New York harbor. Cyprinodon variegatus displayed the most consistent accumulation of PCBs. However, no definition statement can be made regarding acute toxicity response because of poor control survival, Review of the literature indicates the M. menidia is the most sensitive of the three species examined and, consequently, it is felt that this species should be strongly considered as a candidate for solid testing.
