contaminants in fishes from great lakes-influenced sections and above dams of three michigan rivers. ii: implications for health of mink.populations of mink (mustela vison) have declined in many areas of the world. such declines have been linked to exposures to synthetic, halogenated hydrocarbons. in the great lakes region, mink are fewer in areas along the shore of the great lakes and their tributaries where mink have access to fish from the great lakes. recently, there has been discussion of the relative merits of passage of fishes around hydroelectric dams on rivers in michigan. a hazard assessment was conducted to determine t ...19948060165
contaminants in fishes from great lakes-influenced sections and above dams of three michigan rivers. i: concentrations of organo chlorine insecticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxin equivalents, and mercury.fishes of the great lakes contain hazardous chemicals such as synthetic halogenated hydrocarbons and metals. these fish can move from the lakes into the great lakes tributaries of michigan. in doing so, they transport concentrations of contaminants which may represent a risk to wildlife. concentrations of mercury (hg), total polychlorinated biphenyls (pcbs), 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin equivalents (tcdd-eq), total ddt complex, aldrin, endrin, dieldrin, heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, lin ...19948060164
contaminants of fishes from great lakes-influenced sections and above dams of three michigan rivers: iii. implications for health of bald eagles.recently, there have been discussions of the relative merits of passage of fishes around hydroelectric dams on three rivers (au sable, manistee, and muskegon) in michigan. a hazard assessment was conducted to determine the potential for adverse effects on bald eagles that could consume such fishes from above and below dams on the three primary rivers. the hazard assessments were verified by comparing the reproductive productivities of eagles nesting in areas where they ate primarily fish from ei ...19957487154
