Bioaccumulation of 4-nonylphenol in marine animals--a re-evaluation.

The bioaccumulation of 4-nonylphenol (NP) has been studied in shrimps (Crangon grangon L.), mussels (Mytilus edulis L.) and sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus L.) exposed to (14)C-NP in running seawater. NP was extracted with high recovery from tissues which were pretreated with pancreatic enzymes. The bioconcentration factor determined of NP in fish was… (More)
