The role of contaminants in the causation of a variety of biological disorders observed in Puget Sound wildlife is not well understood. The report summarizes the current understanding and implications of toxic contaminants in Puget Sound wildlife and provides recommendations for future research and monitoring. A primary objective is to provide technical guidance on research and monitoring that, where possible, integrates a variety of approaches to identify contaminants and their impacts on wildlife. The guidance is designed to support local, state, and federal agencies that may conduct research or monitoring on wildlife in Puget Sound. The scope has been kept limited. Existing research is insufficient to adequately assess the impacts of contaminants on wildlife species in Puget Sound. Some of the data gaps involve the status and trends of wildlife populations and contaminant levels in wildlife that will require long-term monitoring.
