Biological laboratory studies were conducted to evaluate the bioavailability of sediment-absorbed heavy metals to benthic invertebrates and to determine the degree of correlation between tissue concentration and metals concentration in various chemical extractants from the sediments. Animals were exposed to contaminated sediments for up to six weeks.
