Samples of blubber, brain, kidney, liver, and muscle of individual beluga whales were extracted and analyzed for extractable organic Cl (EOCl), Br (EOBr), and I (EOI) by neutron activation analysis. The highest levels of EOCl (554 microg g(-1) lipid) were found in the kidney of Arctic beluga and the lowest (24 microg g(-1) lipid) in the blubber. Levels in(More)
To assess the effect of crude oil on selected gastrointestinal parasites of fish, winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) naturally infected with a digenetic trematode (Steringophorus furciger), were exposed to contaminated sediment or water soluble fractions of Venezuelan crude oil for 34 and 160 days respectively. Similarly, Atlantic cod (Gadus(More)
1. Total lipids, total phospholipids, lipid class and fatty acids have been studied in the livers of cod and winter flounder from the Northwest Atlantic following long-term exposure to crude petroleum. 2. The levels of free fatty acids and total phospholipids were elevated and triglycerides depleted significantly in the males and females of both species in(More)
Extractable organohalogens (EOX) are organic compounds that contain chlorine, bromine and/or iodine, which can be separated from the matrix by liquid/liquid or liquid/solid extraction. A combination of instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and solvent extraction methods has been developed for the determination of EOX from the shrimpPandalus(More)
