A method for the efficient removal of petroleum-derived hydrocarbons from the oil-contaminated effluent of a continuous flow-through oil bioassay system is described. The concentration of No. 2 fuel oil in the effluent, discharged at rates from 17 to 26 L/min, is reduced from an average of 17 to approximately 1 ppm by passing the water through acrylic fibers.
