5. Since it is generally agreed that any impacts of drilling fluid discharges will be restricted to the benthos where drilling fluid solids accumulate, solid phase bioassay protocols should be developed to more realistically evaluate the toxicity of drilling fluid solids to benthic organisms. Environmentally realistic and interpretable standard bioassay protocols are needed for certification and acceptance of generic muds and new mud additives and formulations as specified in NPDES permits.
