  • Descrição: Concentrations of heavy metals and organochlorine compounds were measured in pelagic cetaceans found stranded along the coasts of England and Wales. The animal species included Risso's dolphin, white-beaked dolphin, common dolphin, long-finned pilot whale, white-sided dolphin, pygmy sperm whale, Sowerby's beaked whale, fin whale, and minke whale. Metal concentrations were generally low or within previously established ranges, except for cadmium in the minke whale and mercury concentrations in the two beaked whales and the minke whale. Concentrations of hexachlorocyclohexanes and hexachlorobenzene were low in all animals, and total DDT concentrations ranged 0.739.0 mg/kg. The summed concentrations of 25 PCB congeners ranged 189 mg/kg, with PCB 153 the most abundant. All relevant concentration data are tabulated.
