Abstract
    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and some oranochlorine pesticides were measured in flounder, cod, sole, shrimps and mussels by capillary gaschromatography. PCBs predomiated among the organochlorine residues and represented 75 to 90 % of the global content. The average PCB-concentration in the wet tissue ranged from 39.5 ppb in shrimps to 261.1 ppb in mussels. From the group "DDT and its metabolites"only the derivates p,p'-DDE and p,p'-DDD could be quantified.The different organochlorine pesticides were present in concentrations generally below 5ppb in wet tissue.From the point of view of public health the organochlorine residues in marine organisms seem to present no risk.
