Organochlorine and metal pollution were studied in fish from different sites of the river Seine situated upstream and downstream of Paris. The metal content in roach were similar to those usually found in freshwater fish species. The PCB and the Pb pollutant levels in the fish evolved similarly along the river: from 1300 to 16,000 micrograms/kg dry weight for the PCBs and from 0.3 to 9.5 mg/kg for Pb, while the content of other metals did not change. The stations with the highest organochlorine… CONTINUE READING
