This report makes inferences on the pollution status of the Thames Estuary based on the analysis of fish data collected at eight sites along the length of the estuary from Teddington Weir to Sea reach number one mainly during 1989. Species composition and total abundance data was used extensively throughout. Abundance of selected species in the mid estuary during the early summer and long term trends in species composition and abundance as shown by regression analysis of past data were also considered. Diversity and evenness indices were calculated.
