Abstract
    New Canadian federal government regulations for environmental effects monitoring (EEM) require the industrial sector to examine their receiving environments for impacts. The most cited problem during the first cycle was the inability to capture sufficient numbers of two sentinel species. For this and other reasons we have been examining the use of small forage fish species for use in EEM programs. Our studies indicate that it is possible to examine all measures of fish health required for the EEM program in forage fish and we have also initiated other studies using these fish to examine endocrine disruption downstream of other discharges in Canada.
