The water storage and transport of logs is commonplace in the Pacific Northwest. The effect of bark deposits on the benthic ecosystem, including numerous species of macro-invertebrates, was investigated. These and other organisms are important links in the food chain for fish and shellfish which inhabit lakes, streams, and estuaries used for log storage. Based upon the results of this study, bark deposits appear to have little or no detrimental effect on the benthic macro-invertebrates which inhabit Yaquina Estuary.
