Description Data tables are provided that show results from analyzing zinc, lead, and cadmium in 62 fish tissue samples and 3 crayfish samples collected from the Spokane River in 1999. The fish species, rainbow trout, mountain whitefish, and largescale suckers were analyzed both as whole fish and fillets. The crayfish were analyzed whole.

The fish from this study were also analyzed for PBDEs. These data are included in the EIM project AJOH0022, but the bulk of the results do not appear in any publications. PBDE results from six specific fish are discussed in publication 01-03-033 (linked below).
