This manual describes six short-term (forty minutes to seven days) estuarine and marine methods for measuring the chronic toxicity of effluents and receiving waters to eight species. The methods include single and multiple concentration static renewal and static nonrenewal toxicity tests from effluents and receiving waters. Also included are guidelines on laboratory safety, quality assurance facilities, and equipment and supplies; dilution water; effluent and receiving water sample collection, preservation, shipping, and holding; test conditions; toxicity test data analysis; report preparation; and organism culturing, holding, and handling.
