The Fish Larvae and Egg Exposure System FLEES was designed to simulate the resuspension of sediment related to dredging operations and has been used over time to generate biological response data for dredging projects where environmental windows EW severely restrict dredging operations Lutz et al. 2012. This technical note focuses on the physical and behavioral effects of resuspended sediment for the purpose of developing better informed EWs for dredging operations.
