Equipment Used
To establish two reference areas in which no dumping has taken place with three 
primary goals:
1. Develop and test traps for sampling benthic fish and shellfish,
2. Evaluate the ability to sample potential target species,
3. Obtain specimens from reference stations to provide a baseline of 
contaminants and radionuclides from clean areas for later comparison with 
possibly contamintated areas.
Information to be Derived
Sediment size, biological and sediment collection data, radionuclide
analysis, trace metals and organics analysis
