Eurytemora affinis, a calanoid copepod, was selected for standard toxicity testing protocol development subsequent to screening 25 resident Chesapeake Bay species including fish, invertebrates, and plants. Eurytemora was selected because of its ecological importance as an essential component in the trophic structure of the estuary, its relative practicability of culturing in the laboratory for year-round availability, and its sensitivity to toxic substances. The standards operating procedures described in this document provide detailed procedures for culturing, holding, and toxicity testing of E. affinis.
