Description In 2023, the Washington State Department of Ecology’s Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic (PBT) Monitoring Program will conduct a study to fill data gaps on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) concentrations in various species of freshwater fish sampled from a variety of waterbodies. Surface water and fish fillet tissue will be collected from 10 lakes and analyzed for 40 PFAS in the fall. Freshwater fish species will include popular angling targets such as cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, kokanee, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and walleye.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
