PURPOSE The first objective of this Dredging Operations and Engineering DOER technical note is to summarize currently available estuarine and marine water-only zooplankton toxicity test methods that may be suitable for use with or without modifications in dredging evaluations that are being conducted under the Marine Protection Research and Sanctuaries Act 103 evaluations. The second objective is to identify additional zooplankton species that are available commercially but do not have established test methods. Development of toxicity test methods should be considered for these marine zooplankton species.
