Bioindicators of Organochlorine Pesticides in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Western Bering Sea

Bioindicators of Organochlorine Pesticides in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Western Bering Sea Organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), such as HCHs and DDTs, are still used as pesticides in the Southern Hemisphere and can reach the North Pacific due to long range atmospheric transfer. Marine mammals (Pacific walrus Odobenus rosmarus divergens, gray whale Eschrichtius robustus), the seabirds (Pacific gull Larus schistisagus, crested auklet Aethia cristatella, auklet crumb Aethia pusilla, northern fulmar Fulmarus glacialis, and grey petrel Oceanodroma furcata) and Pacific salmon (pink Oncorhynchus gorbuscha, chum O. keta, chinook O. tshawytscha, and sockeye O. nerka) were collected near the Kuril Islands (the northern–western part of the Pacific Ocean), in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Bering Sea. The total OCPs concentration (HCHs + DDTs) was found in each organism, including the Pacific walrus (70–90,263 ng/g lipid), the seabirds (29–16,095 ng/g lipid), and the Pacific salmon (41–7103 ng/g lipid). The concentrations and possible sources of OCPs in marine organisms as biological indicators are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology Springer Journals
