Technical Bulletin No. 0210: Effects of Kraft Pulp Mill Effluent on the Production and Food Relations of Juvenile Chinook Salmon in Laboratory Streams

The effects of kraft pulp mill effluent (KME) on the growth, production, and food consumption of juvenile chinook salmon, Oncorhynchus tschawytscha (Walbaum), and on the abundance of their food organisms were studied in simplified communities in six laboratory streams. The investigation was conducted between June 1966 and June 1967 at the Pacific Cooperative Water Pollution and Fisheries Research Laboratory, Oregon State University.
