This guidance document, using the freshwater TIE approach as a model, has been developed to aid in conducting acute and chronic marine TIEs. It focuses on Phase I of the TIE: Toxicity Characterization. Phase I of a TIE characterizes the classes of toxicants causing adverse biological effects. These classes may include metals, organics, pH dependent toxicants, volatile toxicants, filterable toxicants, and oxidants. In this document, information is provided for: (1) salinity adjustment of freshwaer effluents with brine, (2) general guidance for the performance of small volume marine toxicity tests with Altantic, Gulf, and Pacific Coast species used in NPDES permit or as a NPDES permit testing requirements, (3) tolerances to the chemicals added during a TIE, and (4) the conduct of TIE manipulations. These acute/chronic TIE procedures have been developed for a number of specific macroalgas, echinioids, mysids, bivalves, an amphipod, gastropods, and fishes. Recommended manipulations described in this document include filtration, aeration, EDTA chelation, oxidant reduction, graduated pH, C18 solid phase extraction (SPE), cation exchange SPE, and sea lettuce Ulva lactuca addition.
