Description
The mysid shrimp population of the Scheldt estuary will be sampled and studied. The density, biomass, population structure and brood size will be measured and compared with historical data. more

The mysid shrimp population of the Scheldt estuary will be sampled and studied. The density, biomass, population structure and brood size will be measured according to previously published studies by Mees et al. (1993) and Mees et al. (1994). In this way, the present population dynamics can be compared with the available historical data and possible changes can be detected. In addition, a more in-depth field study on the possible endocrine disruption effects will be conducted based on the results of the laboratory toxicity experiments. Sensitive endpoints identified in the laboratory experiments will be validated in situ on the resident mysid shrimp population in the Scheldt estuary. The laboratory and field studies will evaluate potential endocrine disruption in mysid shrimp populations in the Scheldt estuary. This may possibly result in an ecotoxicological surveillance system aimed at the detection of endocrine disruptive effects.
