Description The neonicotinoid insecticide imidacloprid (IMI) has been proposed for the control of burrowing shrimp on oyster beds in Willapa Bay, Washington. Use of IMI may be denied if it is shown that ESA-listed green sturgeon are adversely affected as a result of exposure to the compound. Green sturgeon were found to feed opportunistically on IMI-impaired shrimp following test applications of the insecticide. Foraging activities could result in exposure to IMI in sediment pore water and from the... Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of Washington, 2013
