Contents Notes
"The culturing of salmon in marine net-pens results in the release of solid wastes (fish feces and unconsumed food) to the surrounding aquatic environment. These wastes can result in increased concentrations of phytoplankton nutrients within the water column and increased bacterial activity among bottom sediments... The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 10 undertook a study of procedures for monitoring the near-field benthic effects of organic deposition from salmon marine net-pens. Sediments and infaunal macroinvertebrates were sampled at five net-pens in Puget Sound, Washington..." p. 1 Introduction.
