Dutch Harbor, located on the Aleutian chain, has become the second largest processing center of shellfish in Alaska. Because of the large volume of wastes produced (two thirds of the total harvest weight processed) it was determined that information on the water quality effects of waste discharges and the compliance status of NP DES permits issued to seafood processors should be gathered. A brief one day study was performed in October, 1975, and a more extensive survey was conducted during October, 1976. Results indicate generally lowered water quality conditions including low dissolved oxygen concentrations near the bottom, increased nutrient concentrations within the bays, and decomposing sludge deposits of seafood wastes. An appendix discusses waste disposal practices of crab processors at Unalaska and Amaknak Islands, Alaska.
