Abstract: from the introduction, ". . .In the present study, a benthic survey was conducted in Newark Bay as part of an environmental assessment of a proposed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers navigation project. Sampling was carried out in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The purpose of the field and laboratory effort was to collect quantitative baseline information on the benthic fauna, sediments, and water quality characteristics of the project area. This information was then analyzed to 1) characterize the distribution and abundance of the benthos in the project area; 2) relate observed biological patterns to environmental parameters; 3) test the shallow vs deep hypothesis formulated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; 4) compare the distribution and abundance of finfish, as observed from several recent fishery studies, to their potential food items in the benthos; and 5) assess the potential impacts of the proposed navigation project on the benthos. . ."
