      The Hudson-Raritan System, which includes New York Harbor, is a varied and complex coastal plain estuary. The system is dominated by a drowned river valley (the Hudson), with a network of tidal straits (Arthur Kill, Kill Van Kull, and the Harlem and East Rivers), open and enclosed bays (Raritan, Jamaica, and New York Bays), tidal mud. Effects of contaminants on the fauna of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, and risks to humans from consuming estuary fauna.

        PCBs have accumulated to relatively high levels in bottom sediments of the New York--New Jersey Harbor estuarine system, the New York Bight Apex, and the Delaware River estuary primarily as a result of deliberate and inadvertent releases to the . The New York–New Jersey Harbor Estuary, also known as the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, is in the Mid-Atlantic states of New Jersey and New York on the East Coast of the United States. The system of waterways of the Port of New York and New Jersey forms one of the most intricate natural harbors in the world. The harbor opens onto the New York Bight in the Atlantic Ocean to the southeast and .

        The laboratory, at the entrance to the Hudson-Raritan estuary, continued to grow in importance over the years, assessing the effect of pollution on fish and plankton.   The Hudson-Raritan Estuary is one of several United States coastal areas where chemical data have suggested a potential for contaminant-related biological effects, and multiyear intensive bioeffects surveys have been conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The severity and spatial patterns in sediment toxicity were determined in an estuary Cited by:

Managing PCBs in the Hudson/Raritan Estuary and the New York Bight System. Scott McCreary with Marc David Block and Marlene Mallner, Octo This paper consists of the page negotiated single text of the NYAS New York Bight Initiative. Abstract. When former New York State Commissioner of Environmental Conservation Ogden Reid warned consumers on August 8, against eating fish from the Hudson River and Lake Ontario because of contamination with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), relatively few people were even aware of the existence of these by: 5.

The New York/New Jersey Harbor (also known as the Hudson River Estuary) is heavily contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) arising in part from inputs from the Upper Hudson River, which is a Superfund site containing historical PCB contamination, and also due to inputs from the New York City metropolitan by: 12 Larval Migrations Between the Hudson River Estuary and New York Bight Steven G.

The results indicate that processes in the sediment are highly significant in the removal of PHCs from the system and a comparatively low proportion of PHCs discharged to the Hudson Raritan estuary are eventually discharged to New York Bight through the Sandy Hook-Rockaway Point by: 12 Larval Migrations Between the Hudson River Estuary and New York Bight Steven G.
