Abstract
    Within the BEEP project (Biological Effects of Environmental Pollution in Marine Ecosystems) the Work Package 1 was addressed to the development of new and more sensitive biomarkers of exposure in several sentinel organisms. Within this framework, common mesocosm exposures of organic pollutants relevant for marine ecosystems were conducted in the facilities of Akvamiljø a/s (Stavanger, Norway). In the first experiment, Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) and shore crab (Carcinus maenas) were exposed to nonylphenol, North Sea crude oil and a combination of crude oil and alkylated phenols. Mussels (Mytilus edulis) were exposed to North Sea crude oil and a combination of crude oil, alkylated phenols and PAHs. In the second experiment, Atlantic cod, turbot, mussel and spider crab (Hyas araneus) were exposed to the plasticizers bisphenol A and diallyl phatalate and the brominated flame retardant BDE-47. The main purpose of the present study was to provide the 30 participating Institutes with samples which had been exposed to defined contaminant concentrations in a controlled laboratory exposure for 3 weeks. This paper describes the mesocosm experimental design, the transplantation and treatment of the organisms, and the contaminant exposures.
