This article reports the organ distribution and bioaccumulation of hepatotoxic microcystins (MCs) in freshwater fishes at different trophic levels from the large, shallow, eutrophic Lake Chaohu in September 2003, when there were heavy surface blooms of toxic cyanobacteria. Among all fish, intestines and blood had the highest average content of MC-RR + MC-LR (22.0 and 14.5 microg g(-1) DW, respectively), followed by liver, bile, and kidney (7.77, 6.32, and 5.81 microg g(-1) DW, respectively… CONTINUE READING
