Ballast water treatments to limit the transfer of nonindigenous species between freshwater ports.
Mandatory ballast water exchange (BWE) was implemented for vessels carrying ballast water into the Great Lakes in 1993; however, few data are available on its effectiveness. I conducted BWE
Toxicity of ozonated seawater to marine organisms
TLDR
The toxicity of ozone in artificial seawater (ASW) for five species of marine organisms in short-term (< or = 5 h) batch exposures is determined, providing necessary information for the optimization of an efficacious ozone ballast water treatment system.
Acute toxicity of a household bleach, sodium hypochlorite, to a whirligig beetle Orectogyrus alluaudi Régimbart, 1889 (Coleoptera: Gyrinidae)
TLDR
The finding showed that indiscriminate use of the household bleach would have serious impact on the bionomics of this species.
Does saltwater flushing reduce viability of diapausing eggs in ship ballast sediment?
Flushing of ballast tanks with seawater has been proposed to reduce the risk of invasion associated with residual ballast in ‘no ballast on board’ ships. The efficacy of this procedure, however, has
Aquatic invertebrate resting egg sensitivity to glutaraldehyde and sodium hypochlorite
TLDR
The present results corroborate those from previous investigations of resting egg sensitivity to artificial stressors, supporting the conclusions that resting eggs are less sensitive than other life stages to Artificial stressors and that chemical biocide concentrations effective against otherlife stages may be ineffective against resting stages.
Retroactive Evaluation of International Maritime Organization Ballast Water Standards
TLDR
The efficacy of ballast water exchange (BWE) in reducing invasion risk of six current invaders to the Great Lakes was evaluated and a lack of salinity tolerance data on Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia Virus (VHSV) precluded assessment of the efficacy of BWE in preventing its introduction.

Chemical and physical treatment options to kill toxic dinoflagellate cysts in ships' ballast water
TLDR
Effective treatment to prevent germination of dinoflagellate cysts in seawater samples could be achieved with high concentrations of free chlorine or hydrogen peroxide, but the high costs involved and environmental as well as ship safety considerations render these options impracticable.
Valve closure responses of the Asiatic clam Corbicula fluminea exposed to cadmium and zinc
TLDR
Asiatic clams demonstrated a greater rate of response to progressively more concentrated solutions of cadmium than to comparable increases in the concentrations of zinc solutions, and lengthening durations of periods with valves sealed coincided with exposure of clams to progressivelyMore concentrated zinc solutions.
An evaluation of the toxicity of various forms of chlorine to Ceriodaphnia dubia
Ambient toxicity tests at 15 sites on five small streams that receive discharges from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (TN) showed that chlorine (mostly from once-through cooling water) was an important
Hydrogen peroxide: an effective treatment for ballast water.
TLDR
The analysis of cohorts demonstrated that C. fornicata in Pleasant Bay can be divided into 5 size cohorts, and it is shown that a minimum age can be calculated by adding the maximum C.Fornicata length on a given horseshoe crab to the minimum age of horseshOE crabs at maturity.
Effects of low-level chlorination on zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha.
Estimation of potential and limits of bivalve closure response to detect contaminants: Application to cadmium
TLDR
An original system by impedance valvometry, using light-weight impedance electrodes, to study free-ranging animals in low-stress conditions and a new analytical approach to describe valve closure behavior as a function of response time and concentration of contaminant are developed.
Effects of metals on early life stages of the brine shrimp,Artemia: A developmental toxicity assay
TLDR
It is apparent from the findings that use of early stages ofArtemia is an alternative to the examination of slower growing animals for the study of metal pollution in coastal marine waters.
Viability of invertebrate diapausing eggs collected from residual ballast sediment
TLDR
Results from this study indicate that vessels entering the Great Lakes with only residual ballast are a potential vector for the introduction of new nonindigenous species during multiport operations.
Acute toxicity and structure‐activity relationships of nine alcohol ethoxylate surfactants to fathead minnow and Daphnia magna
Auatic toxicity of nine commercial‐grade alcohol ethoxylate surfactants was studied in acute exposures to fathead minnow (Pimephalespromelas) and Daphnia magna. All studies were conducted in
