||The paper evaluates biological, chemical, and physical monitoring methods and presents a research strategy for coastal monitoring. The purpose of the strategy is to provide a conceptual model for detecting contaminant-induced perturbations of marine systems. The proposed strategy represents a shift in emphasis from analysis of chemical concentrations to an initial biological examination of the effects of contaminants on marine organisms. Evidence of adverse biological effects obtained in this hierarchical strategy would result in the application of chemical and physical techniques to identify the types and sources of contaminants.
