Examinations of current wastewater and solid waste disposal practices and characterization of the wastewater effluent for seafood processing were carried out in a project within the state of Maryland in order to recommend economical waste treatment and disposal systems for the industries. Chemical and bacteriological examination of the present plants in light of promulgated EPA Guidelines for the industry for 1977 and 1983 revealed all plants meeting oil and grease as well as pH effluent limitations. Other chemical parameters were only partially or were entirely beyond limitations while bacteriological data showed large numbers of organisms surviving even in heavily chlorinated effluents.
