Abstract : This note focuses on studies evaluating the sublethal effects of chlorinated organic contaminants on marine and estuarine organisms. Its objective is twofold: (1) to survey the literature for papers reporting both the sublethal effects of organohalogens and the corresponding body burdens in marine fish and invertebrates and (2) to provide a source of information for Corps field elements who have site-specific concerns (e.g., reproductive effects in a particular organism exposed to a specific organohalogen). pg2.
