Two Bight ’18 Sediment Quality reports nearing completion

Posted October 30, 2020

The Southern California Bight 2018 Regional Monitoring Program is preparing to publish the third volume of its Sediment Quality assessment reports by the end of the year, with a fourth volume not far behind.

The Contaminant Bioaccumulation in Edible Sport Fish Tissue report, which already has been reviewed by the Sediment Quality Planning Committee, is scheduled to be published in December. The fourth Sediment Quality volume, Demersal Fishes and Megabenthic Invertebrates (Trawl), is expected to undergo review by the Planning Committee in November.

These publications will follow the publication of the Sediment Chemistry report last summer and the Sediment Toxicity report last spring.
