Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) have been associated with adverse health effects in marine mammals. However, the complex mixtures to which free-ranging populations are exposed constrain the elucidation of cause-and-effect relationships between specific POPs and the observed health risks. In this study, we 1) assembled data from studies showing polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-associated effects on the health of free-ranging harbor seals in the northeastern Pacific Ocean, 2) carried out… CONTINUE READING
