Abstract
    PCB levels in sediments (bulk <63um), suspended matter and zooplankton from the Belgian continental shelf and Scheldt estuary are evaluated in relation to their organic carbon content, lipid content and for sediments also particle size distributions. Geographical and seasonal variations are discussed. A discussion is given on the PCB accumulation mechanics, considering passive (direct) contamination routes (absorption-partitioning) and for zooplankton also indirect contamination through food.
