Abstract
The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) conducted a pilot study to determine appropriate methods of biologically assessing the large rivers of the Susquehanna River Basin. Data were collected at eight of ten original sites along the New York-Pennsylvania border during September 2002. To biologically assess the river, SRBC staff used four methods: vacuum benthic sampler; rock basket sampler; multi-plate sampler; and a traditional Rapid Bioassessment Protocol (RBP) III kick net. Additionally, water quality and physical habitat data were collected at the time of sampling.
