Abstract
    PCB levels in cod, flounder, mussel and shrimp, covering a ten year period, were assessed for temporal trends and their relation to biological parameters. A significant relation was demonstrated between the PCB levels on a wet weight basis and the total lipid content. Normalising on the lipid content reduces the differences in PCB levels between the organisms and between different tissues within the organism. A general downward trend was observed for the PCB levels on the Belgian continental shelf.
