Invasion of zebra mussels, Dreissena polymorpha, and round gobies, Neogobius melanostomus, into the Great Lakes has altered the food web structure and thereby the pathways of toxic contaminants such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCNs). In this study, concentrations of PCNs and PCBs were measured in organisms of a Great Lakes benthic food chain encompassing zebra mussels. PCNs were found in all of the benthic organisms, including phytoplankton, algae… CONTINUE READING
