Dungeness crab (Cancer magister) samples were collected from various pulp mill and principal harbor sites on the West Coast of Canada. Full congener PCB analysis was performed on several composite and single hepatopancreas samples from each site, and the spatial variability of PCB patterns was explored. A recently developed direct mixing model (DMM) which relies on iteration of representative Aroclor end-members was used to make source predictions based on congener-specific PCB data from biota… CONTINUE READING
