This paper presents the results of PCB, DDT and benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) determination in white croaker (Genyonemus lineatus) sampled from the coastal waters of metropolitan Los Angeles. The purpose of this research was to assess the potential health hazard caused by the consumption of the edible muscle tissue of this popular sportfish exposed to these pollutants in the coastal waters.
