This study evaluated the toxicity of three shoreline cleaners: PES-51, CytoSol, and Accell Clean SWA. The laboratory experiments evaluated the ability of each cleaner to remove petroleum hydrocarbons from artificial substrates, while the mesocosm experiments evaluated the relationship between each of the cleaners and the mortality of various salt marsh species (specifically fish, clams, snails, polychaetes, and amphipods).
