dc.description.abstractA survey of contamination of fish from major watersheds in the United States by 2,3,7,8-TCDD has been conducted by the U.S. EPA. Bottom feeding and predator fish were collected at 90 statistically selected and 305 regionally selected sites and analyzed by GC/MS. It was found that 19% of the statistically sampled sites and 31% of the regionally selected sites were contaminated at or above a minimum level of detection varying from 0.5 to 2.0 pg/g. Ten percent of all samples were contaminated at levels greater than 5.0 pg/g. It was also observed that a subset of samples collected at sites near discharge from pulp/paper manufacture has a higher frequency of TCDD contamination above 5.0 pg/g. This subset of samples also contained the sample of the greatest level of TCDD contamination.en_US
