The workshop brought together nine experts on the aquatic chemistry and biology of selenium to discuss technical issues underlying the freshwater aquatic life chronic criterion. The discussion among the experts was guided by questions posed in a technical charge written by EPA. At the workshop, the experts heard presentations by two leading selenium researchers; they then collectively discussed the questions in the technical charge and related issues. This report presents the results of this peer consultation. Section II of this report presents the chair's summary of the overarching themes and recommendations that emerged from the workshop. Section III summarizes the discussions and specific conclusions concerning each question in the technical charge. Section IV summarizes comments presented by observers at the meeting. Section V lists the references cited in the report.
