Ammonia is a common and highly toxic pollutant which, in sufficient quantities, will adversely affect aquatic organisms. The ammonia criteria document for saltwater will allow establishment of regulatory standards for ammonia discharge into estuaries, near coastal zones and oceans. Possible adverse impacts in highly sensitive and abundant ecosystems such as estuaries make regulation particularly important.
