Description The Washington State Department of Ecology has conducted a survey of polychlorinated dibenzo-dioxins (PCDDs) and -furans (PCDFs) in muscle tissue of sportfish from the middle reaches of the Columbia River. Concentrations in ten species of sportfish collected between Chief Joseph Dam and McNary Dam from May through November 1990 are reported here. The results of this investigation have been provided to the Washington State Department of Health for an assessment of human health implications.
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.
