Low levels of oil and hence polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are naturally present in the marine environment, although levels have increased significantly following human extraction and use of oil and gas. Other major anthropogenic sources of PAHs include smelters, the use of fossil fuels in general, and various methods of waste disposal, especially incineration. There are two major sources for PAHs to marine ecosystems in Norway: the inshore smelter industry, and offshore oil and gas…

TLDR
PAHs have a toxicity for aquatic animals, indicating that the prevention of aquatic PAH pollution should be emphasized, and the correlation between PAHs and microplastics is described.

PAHs and fish—exposure monitoring and adverse effects—from molecular to individual level

TLDR
PAHs are ubiquitous and present as very complex mixtures, which enter the environment through different routes, and are directly linked to human activity and the release of PAHs into the environment has increased over the last few decades.

Role of environmental factors and microorganisms in determining the fate of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the marine environment

TLDR
The importance of the microbial ecology in PAH-polluted marine ecosystems is highlighted as well as the importance of gaining further in-depth knowledge of the environmental services provided by microorganisms.

Accumulation and effects of aluminum smelter—generated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons on soft—bottom invertebrates and fish

TLDR
The results support the assumption that PAHs associated with soot-like structures have limited bioavailability and point to the need to link various single-species approaches to measurements of effects on higher levels of organization and with an understanding of the speciation of the chemical contaminant.

Phototoxicity of individual polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and petroleum to marine invertebrate larvae and juveniles

TLDR
This study shows that phototoxicity can occur in marine waters to marine species and the occurrence of oil in marine Waters presents the additional risk of photot toxicity not routinely assessed for during oil spills.
