brominated flame retardants and polychlorinated biphenyls in fish from the river scheldt, belgium.levels of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (pbdes), hexabromocyclododecanes (hbcds), and polychlorinated biphenyls (pcbs) were measured in several fish species originating from the river scheldt (belgium). five sampling locations were chosen in a highly industrialized area along the river, while two ponds in the vicinity of the river served as reference sites. the present study is a follow-up of a survey performed in 2000 which reported extremely high levels of pbdes and hbcds in eel (anguilla ang ...200818400299
what can we learn from monitoring pcbs in the european eel? a belgian experience.between 2000 and 2007 pooled muscle tissue samples of the european eel (anguilla anguilla) from 48 sites in flanders (belgium) were analysed for 30 polychlorinated biphenyl (pcb) congeners. there was a large variation between individual sites (range 11-7752 ng/g wet weight (ww) for the sum of the ices 7 pcbs), eels from the river meuse basin (mean 1545 ng/g ww) being considerably more polluted than those from the river scheldt (615) and ijzer (61) basins. overall, pcb 153, pcb 138 and pcb 180 we ...201121075450
