Title: Preliminary technical report on the Niagara River mussel biomonitoring survey 1993
Author: Richman, Lisa A.
Abstract: Caged mussels were placed in the Niagara River on the American and Canadian side for three weeks. The mussels were retrieved and the tissues were then analyzed for a variety of contaminants. The study was designed to identify sources of contamination by persistent organic chemicals along the Niagara River, assess the effectiveness of contaminant source reductions and U.S and Canadian cleanup efforts at previously identified contaminated sites (NRTC 1984). The results are useful to compare the relative contribution of contaminants to the river from individual point and non-point sources.
