Halifax Harbour sediments contain heavy metals and organic contaminants. To assess the biological effects of these compounds in the sediment, seven sites spanning a range of known sediment types, water depths, metal levels, and organic contaminant levels were chosen for assessment by a series of tests. Sediment toxicity was measured by the reduction of microbial luminescence (Photobacterium phosphoreum) in three Microtoxr tests (pore water, solvent extract, and solid phase), by the percentages… CONTINUE READING
