The Elizabeth River is the most heavily settled and industrialized major subestuary in Virginia's Chesapeake System. Under increasing use and development since around 1610, its' waters have been exposed to all types of domestic, agricultural, military and industrial contaminants. ....Its sediments are contaminated by heavy metals, PAHs and all other introduced materials that accumulate and are stored there, with or without chemical transformation.... Collection of fish began in the Elizabeth River in the summer of 1982.
