Congener-specific levels of PBDEs were measured in the livers and some muscle tissues of Dungeness crab (Cancer magister), English sole (Pleuronectes vetulus) and spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias). Highest concentrations (1,200-560 ng/g lipid) were found in crab collected near heavily urbanized areas (pop. approximately 0.3-1.8 million), followed by moderate levels at pulp/paper mills sites ( approximately 150 ng/g), and lowest levels occurred in areas that were somewhat removed from industrial… CONTINUE READING
