Impacts of oil exposure on fertility potential of affected organisms can allow us to answer questions regarding serious reproductive impairment. Several reproductive hormones were used to establish exposure level impacts on targeted fish species. Enzyme linked immunoassays were performed on blood serum samples-concentrations of hormones and are reported as pg/mL of serum.

The following is a description of each field in the file: Fish Sample ID (unique identifier that corresponds to the Sample ID fields in the other dataset files), Station ID (station where sample was collected), Westbound Extent (western bounding extent of station (DD)), Northbound Extent (northern bounding extent of station (DD)), Southbound Extent (southern bounding extent of station (DD)), Eastbound Extent (eastern bounding extent of station (DD)), Center Point Lat (latitudinal center point of station bounding extent(DD)), Center Point Lon (longitudinal center point of station bounding extent (DD)). |||||
