Recent work at the Milford Laboratory of the National Marine Fisheries Service's Middle Atlantic Coastal Fisheries Center is intended as a convenient reference for scientists investigating heavy-metal stress in marine animals. This report summarizes the data collected in the course of these studies. Test animals used in the studies were collected from Long Island Sound near Milford, CT. Prior to heavy metal exposure, they were acclimated in the lab for at least 2 wk. Exposures were either short-term (hours to days) static tests or long-term (weeks to months) continuous-flow tests. Results are tabulated showing exposure period, concn, oxygen consumption, osmoregulation, enzyme activity and other effects on marine animals of cadmium, mercury and silver pollutants.
