Course Description: AQUATOX is a PC-based model for aquatic ecosystems and simulates eutrophication, chemical fate, bioaccumulation, and ecotoxicology. It predicts the fate of nutrients, suspended solids, and organic chemicals, and their effects on the ecosystem, including fish, invertebrates, and aquatic plants.  This training course will offer an introduction to the model and its use, and focus on application to Columbia River fisheries, specifically on bioaccumulation of toxic pollutants in fish species relied upon by the Columbia River tribes.
