Monitoring the accumulation of toxic substances in tissues of marine organisms is useful for assessing environmental impacts of specific wastewater discharges or evaluating water quality from a regional perspective. Under Section 301(h) of the Clean Water Act, periodic assessment of bioaccumulation in marine organisms is specified as part of the biological monitoring programs. The choice of target species is a key element of any bioaccumulation monitoring program. The purpose of the report is to provide guidance for selecting target species for bioaccumulation monitoring studies.
