Abstract

Due to the dense population, the modern agricultural practice and rapid industrial expansion, the coastal environment of western Taiwan is receiving an ever increasing impact from all kinds of human activities. The untreated and/or treated industrial and municipal wastes are often directly dumped into the near-by river-system, and the rivers carry excessive fertilizers, pesticides and all kinds of human wastes into the coastal waters. In order to safe guard our coastal environments and to protect our marine resources, we have made several hydrological, chemical, biological, ecological and geological monitoring on the rivers, estuaries and coastal environments in the western part of Taiwan since 1973. The survey items include nonbiological factors such as nearshore ocean currents, physical and chemical properties of sea water, and biological factors such as primary productivity, specific compositions and interspecific relationships among phyto-and zooplankton, algae, invertebrates, corals and fishes. Beginning in 1987, the quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) system and good laboratory practice for environmental monitoring have been established. The procedures and frequency used for periodic calibration of the equipment in the monitoring must be specific. Calibration includes initial calibration, routine calibration, and specific calibration. The present paper attempts to introduce the QA/QC system for marine environmental monitoring, and to report the recent monitoring results, particularly the mussel watch monitoring program, on pollution along the western coast of Taiwan.
