Abstract The report is a compilation of fish tissue data from 41 locations in the Albemarle Pamlico Esturaine Study area. It includes the results of 743 samples analyzed for metals and 98 samples analyzed for synthetic organic chemicals. A few general remarks are presented here: Only 6 of the 420 fish fillet samples (1.4%) analyzed for mercury contained concentrations at or above the FDA action level of 1.0 mg/kg. However, four of the six came from one site, Chowan River at Riddicksville. Further sampling for mercury at this site is recommended. High percentages (greater than 70%) of detectable lead concentrations were found in the whole fish samples from Kendricks, Bath, Pungo, and Pantego Creeks. Further sampling for lead at these sites is recommended.
