Abstract
A laboratory method is described for determining the short-term toxicity of contaminated whole sediments using marine and estuarine amphipod crustaceans. Sediments may be collected from estuarine or marine environments or spiked with compounds in the laboratory. A test method is outlined that may be used with any of four amphipod species, including Ampelisca abdita, Eohaustorius estuarius, Leptocheirus plumulosus, and Rhepoxynius abronius. The endpoint in the toxicity test is survival, and reburial of surviving amphipods is an additional measurement that can be used as an endpoint. Procedures are described for use with sediments from oligohaline to fully marine environments.
