We investigated the organochlorine accumulation (p,p'-DDE and sigmaPCB) and stable isotope ratios (N and C) in a migrating salmon (Salmo salar) population in the Baltic Sea. delta15N in the entire population ranged from 11.7 to 13.7 per thousand and delta13C ranged from -22.0 to - 19.6 per thousand. In the entire population, delta15N were weakly related to p,p'-DDE and sigmaPCB concentrations (r2 = 0.20 and 0.14, respectively). However, lipid content was a better predictor of organochlorine (OC… CONTINUE READING
