Description The study used rainbow trout eggs placed in an urban stream to experience a realistic environmental exposure to the full spectrum of toxic chemicals present. Trout stayed in the stream approximately 34 days, until becoming fry. This instream monitoring was designed to assess the suitability of a stream for salmon reproduction. The study also assessed the instream insect and plant communities to see if salmon have a healthy food selection while growing. Passive samplers deployed alongside the trout accumulated the same chemicals as the trout and native stream organisms and provided a list of pollutants potentially responsible for toxic effects.
