To obtain grab samples at each station and analyse for PAH. Collect tissues from common dab for mixed function oxidase activity and PAH bile metabolites. To collect tissues from different marine fish species to determine prevalence of IPNV. Distrubution and prevalence will be determined and the genetic relation of isolates will form future work.
