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… Expand
Toxicities of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons for Aquatic Animals

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. Expand
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. Expand
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in inland aquatic ecosystems: Perils and remedies through biosensors and bioremediation.
TLDR
This review is focussed on inland aquatic ecosystems with an emphasis on fish biodiversity, as fish remains a major source of food and livelihood for a large proportion of the global population. Expand
Sources and environmental fate of pyrogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the Arctic
Abstract Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are large class of hydrophobic, semi-volatile organic contaminants that may enter the environment from both natural sources and anthropogenicExpand
Distribution of petrogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in seafood following Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
TLDR
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), major toxic constituents of crude oil, in the seafood collected from gulf coast during December 2011-February 2014 are far below FDA levels of concern for human consumption. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand

TLDR
The results showed that the toxicity of the PAH solutions decreased 50–100 percent depending on the concentration of the solutions and organisms. Expand
Metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in environmental matrices of the Fleet Lagoon, UK and toxicological investigations using the marine polychaete Hediste diversicolor.
Contamination within the marine environment is ubiquitous and may contain both metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s) individually or within complex mixtures. Contamination may bindExpand

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. Expand
Effects of benzo[a]pyrene exposure on a fish population resistant to the toxic effects of dioxin-like compounds.
TLDR
Results suggest that DLC-resistance could provide protection following chronic exposures to PAHs from the long-term consequences of DNA adduct formation, such as cancer. Expand

Evaluation of the role of black carbon in attenuating bioaccumulation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from field-contaminated sediments.
TLDR
This study provides the first linked BSAF-BC field data that supports a causal relationship between strong soot sorption and reduced bioavailability for PAHs. Expand
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. Expand
Source and species-dependent accumulation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in littoral indicator organisms from norwegian smelter-affected marine waters
TLDR
The accumulation responses of littoral indicator organisms to different sources of combustion-derived PAHs have been analysed and it is shown that the indicator organisms reflect contaminant levels in the ambient environment and that their metabolic regulation was not strong enough to suppress source-specific signals from the smelter-generatedPAHs.

The distribution and sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in Narragansett Bay surface sediments.
TLDR
PAH source ratios indicate that creosote and/or coal may be the most significant contributor of pyrogenic high molecular weight PAHs in Narragansett Bay, along with significant contributions from diesel exhaust. Expand
