OSPAR convention for the protection of the marine environment of the north-east Atlantic




Biological effects monitoring is an important element in programmes which aim to assess the quality of the marine environment since such monitoring can demonstrate links between contaminants and ecological responses. Biological effects monitoring can thus be used to indicate the presence of substances, or combinations of substances, not previously identified as being of concern and can also be used to identify regions of decreased environmental quality. Over the past few years research has enabled the development of a broad range of techniques for measuring biological effects. These have been assessed by ICES and a suite of tests suitable for incorporation into monitoring programmes has now been identified.
