Description: The Alaska Region Oil and Hazardous Substance Pollution Contingency Plan requires that decisions regarding chemical dispersants use in oil spill response in Alaska consider the potential impacts of chemically dispersed oil, including the toxicity to aquatic organisms. This review critically evaluates the aquatic organism toxicity testing protocols developed by the Chemical Response to Oil Spills: Ecological Research Forum (CROSERF) for applicability to assessing chemical dispersant toxicity under subarctic conditions.
