- A test protocol is described to measure sublethal sediment toxicity using the juvenile life stage of the polychaete, Neanthes. The sublethal endpoints include total biomass and average individual biomass relative to controls following a 20-day exposure period. The Neanthes bioassay has distinct advantages over other available sediment toxicity tests including year-round availability of laboratory-cultured test organisms, use of a relatively simple test protocol, and easily measured sublethal endpoints.
