||Information was collected to provide the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department with chemical data needed to begin a preliminary assessment of any health risk possibly faced by persons eating fish and crabs from Commencement Bay and adjacent waters. Sampling was conducted from July 1981 to January 1982. Eighty-six non-salmonid fish and six Dungeness crabs were collected from popular sport fishing locations in the vicinity of Commencement Bay and from a remote reference area, Discovery Bay. Muscle tissue from these specimens was chemically analyzed for selected metals and organic compounds (EPA priority pollutants).
