Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) concentrations and congener profiles were evaluated in four species of Antarctic fish (Chionodraco hamatus, Chaempsocephalus gunnari, Gymnoscopelus nicholsi,Trematomus eulepidotes) and in one Mediterranean species (Tuna, Thunnus thynnus). The GC/MS-ECNI analysis revealed that average sigmaPBDE concentrations in Antarctic fish species ranged from 0.09 ng g(-1)wet weight (wet wt) in G. nicholsi to 0.44 ng g(-1)wet wt in C. gunnari. In Mediterranean tuna they… CONTINUE READING
