We analyzed polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs), perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) in the edible part of farmed sea bass reared in two fish farms in Liguria (Northern Italy). The aim was to determine the contamination levels and human exposure to these chemicals through fish consumption. Concentrations of "dioxin-like" PCBs (DL-PCBs) ranged from 0.033 to 0.759pg ΣTEQ-PCBg(-1) whole weight (w.w.) in fish farm 1 and from 0.032 to 1.60pg ΣTEQ-PCBg(-1) w.w. in fish farm 2, and… CONTINUE READING
