Description In 2014, the Department of Ecology (Ecology) conducted a study to evaluate current levels of emerging contaminants and persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic chemicals (PBTs) in freshwater fish in Washington State. Ecology collected a total of 44 fish tissue samples from 11 waterbodies located throughout the state, across a range of land use types and contamination potential. The tissue samples were analyzed for chemicals that are either on the state’s current PBT List or are emerging contaminants that require more information: polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), alternative brominated flame retardants, alkylphenolic compounds, and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD).
