Description During 1995, the Washington State Department of Ecology conducted a survey to assess concentrations of the pesticide DDT and its breakdown products DDD and DDE in edible fish tissues (muscle fillets) from Osoyoos Lake in north-central Washington. Species analyzed were yellow perch (Perca flavescens), smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieui), mountain whitefish (Prosopium williamsoni), carp (Cyprinus carpio), and lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis). Two whole body samples of large scale sucker (Catostomus macrocheilus) and one smallmouth bass fillet were also analyzed for additional bioaccumulative pesticides and PCBs.
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.
