maternal recall of children's consumption of commercial and sport-caught fish: findings from a multi-state study.a randomized telephone survey of 3015 women was conducted in an effort to assess the effectiveness of local sport-fish consumption advisories. survey participants were between the ages of 18 and 45 and lived in the states of arkansas, california, connecticut, florida, maine, minnesota, montana, new jersey, new mexico, north carolina, and wisconsin. at the time of the women's interview, fish and shellfish consumption information was obtained for children under 18 years of age living in the househ ...200716828736
contaminated fish consumption in california's central valley delta.extensive mercury contamination and angler selection of the most contaminated fish species coincide in california's central valley. this has led to a policy conundrum: how to balance the economic and cultural impact of advising subsistence anglers to eat less fish with the economic cost of reducing the mercury concentrations in fish? state agencies with regulatory and other jurisdictional authority lack sufficient data and have no consistent approach to this problem. the present study focused on ...201020176346
spatial patterns of fishing effort off san diego: implications for zonal management and ecosystem function.the essence of ecosystem-based management is managing human practices to conserve the ecosystem. ecologists focus on understanding the ecosystem, but there are fundamental information gaps including patterns of human exploitation. in particular, the spatial distribution of fishing effort must be known at the scales needed for ecologically relevant management. fishing is a primary impact on coastal ecosystems, yet catch distribution at scales relevant to habitats and processes are not well known ...201021265452
comparisons of field and laboratory estimates of risk of ddts from contaminated sediments to humans that consume fish in palos verdes, california, usa.calculating risk from seafood exposure to persistent organic pollutants continues to be problematic as estimates of exposure from diet require extensive monitoring of fish species and limited assessments of bioavailability from sediments where the contaminants tend to reside. previous studies in our laboratory utilized a laboratory-based isotope dilution method (idm) to estimate the bioavailability of ddt [1,1,1-trichloro-2, 2-bis(p-chloro-phenyl)ethane] and its metabolites from sediment to biot ...201728599370
