Polybrominated diphenyl ethers in sediment and caged mussels (Elliptio complanata) deployed in the Niagara River.


Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) were detected in caged mussels (Elliptio complanata), deployed in the Niagara River for 3weeks in 2003, 2004 and 2006 and in sediment collected from the river and tributaries.
