The types of data obtained in field studies must correspond to data used for risk assessment in order to verify our approaches to predicting contaminant fate and effects in estuarine systems. Survival of caged test animals at field test sites provides field data for direct comparison with laboratory toxicity test results. Coupling survival and other effects data from caged animal studies with assessments of stocks and dynamics of populations of the same or a related species at the field site allows extrapolation from simple laboratory and field test results to more complex and ecologically significant interpretations. The paper presents examples of various approaches to contaminant problems in estuaries.
