Abstract: In June 1961 the U. S. Bureau of Commercial
Fisheries joined with the Atomic Energy Commission
to undertake an investigation of the
deep-water ocean fauna in the area contiguous
to the Columbia River mouth at depths from
50 to 1050 fathoms (91-1920 m). The main
objectives of this project are to describe the
benthic fish and invertebrate communities inhabiting
the study area, and to define their
bathymetric distribution on a temporal basis.
Associated with the faunal investigation is a
monitoring of the various demersal forms to
evaluate the biological transport of radionucleids
which may have their origin in Columbia
River waters.
