Accumulation and elimination of chiral polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine (OC) pesticides by the opossum shrimp, Mysis relicta, was investigated to determine if zooplankton can stereoselectively process chiral OC contaminants. Concentrations and enantiomer fractions were measured within mysids over a 10-day exposure followed by a 45-day… CONTINUE READING
