The report presents the results of laboratory studies on the lethal impacts of suspended sediments on select macroinvertebrates and pelagic species. Initial sensitivity screen ing of San Francisco Bay species utilized commercial kaolin sediments. Four species were run with commercial bentonite varying and integrating levels of suspended solids, temperature, and dissolved oxygen at constant salinity. The ability of each species to survive burial was also studied. (Author).
