Evidence for organochlorine contamination in tissues of salmonids in Lake Tahoe


, : Evidence for organochlorine contamination in tissues of salmonids in Lake Tahoe. Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety 42(1): 94-101

The extent of organochlorine pollution in lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) and Kokanee fish (Oncorhynchus nerka) from Lake Tahoe in the Carson Range of California and Nevada was determined. Mutliresidue analysis of fish muscle revealed wet weight concentrations of total polychlorinated biphenyls in the range 18-430 ppb, and of p,p'-DDE in the range 5-85 ppb in the two species studied.
