Juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) (initial weights 2-5 g) were exposed to three dietary concentrations (0, 12.4 and 126 ng g(-1), wet weight) of a 14C-labelled 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB 126) for 30 days followed by 160 days of clean food. We assessed bioaccumulation, histology (liver and thyroid) and biochemical responses (liver ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD), liver vitamins (retinoids and tocopherol) and muscle thyroid hormone levels) along with growth and survival… CONTINUE READING
