Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund Contingent
Chief Scientist Comments: In 1994, the Trustee Council funded a project to experimentally clean several oiled mussel beds. These beds were last visited in 1995, and it is now timely to revisit them to assess concentrations of remaining oil and also the integrity of the mussel beds themselves. In order to evaluate a restoration technique, this work needs to be done. Fund contingent on submittal of overdue final report (Project 95090).
