Abstract
Toxaphene is one of the major persistent organic pollutants with global environmental impacts. We have measured total toxaphene and specific congeners concentrations in 19 fish samples collected from the Yukon, Canada using gas chromatography coupled to ion trap MS/MS. The total toxaphene concentrations ranged from 42 to 242 ng/g (mean = 107+/-61 ng/g). The sum of the three specific congeners (Parlar 26, 50 and 62) was within 10-55 ng/g. The ratio of the sum of the three congeners to the total toxaphene varied between 8% and 25% in the fish samples but the ratio may be species specific. Our results suggest that consumption of these Yukon fish should have minimal risk of toxaphene exposure.
