  • Description:
    "Monterey Bay (Fig. 1) is an open embayment located on the central California coast. The surrounding coastline is moderately populated with 20 small cities and towns, having a total population of approximately 300,000. These municipalities discharge sewage via ten domestic sewer outfalls, of which eight discharge into the bay and two into the bay's tributaries (Harville 1971). Industrialization is sparse, but industrial wastes from a Pacific Gas and Electric power plant, Kaiser Refractories magnesia plant, and fish canneries enter the bayo A large area of land in the drainage basins tributary to Monterey Bay is cultivated perennially; thus, the bay is subject to agricultural runoff"--Introduction.
