In January 1956, field studies were initiated on a cooperative basis to determine the possible effects of industrial wastes from major Buffalo River industries on the eastern end of Lake Erie and the Niagara River. Buffalo River industries cooperating in this project were National Aniline Division, Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation, Donner-Hanna Coke Corporation, and Socony-Mobil Company. The report covers an investigation of the toxicity to fish of intake waters and major effluents from the Socony-Mobil Oil Company. Refinery wastes contain some chemical compounds which are known to be toxic to aquatic life in relatively low concentration. Bio-assays were made to evaluate directly the toxicity of these complex wastes.
