Gross necropsy and fish liver histopathology are performed on 30 specimens each of two different fish species collected live near the terminus of the Sand Island Ocean Outfall and near reference stations in Maunalua Bay in September 2000. The Sand Island fishes are examined for histologic changes, as part of an ongoing monitoring program. The Maunalua Bay fishes provide a control for histopathologic changes that may be induced by a factor(s) unrelated to substances present in wastewater discharged from ocean outfalls in waters off O’ahu.
