PCB residues were measured in samples of Cladophora, Ulothrix, net plankton, water, and fish collected in the Harbor Beach area of Lake Huron. The PCB patterns in the samples were found to match a mixture of Aroclor 1242 and 1254. Aroclor 1242 represented about 60% of the mixture in all the samples except the fish, where Aroclor 1242 represented about 75% of the total PCB measured. The accumulation factors observed in the progression from Cladophora to net plankton to fish were 1:15:30; these were similar to the concentration factors (1:14:44) developed on these ecosystem compartments in Lake Ontario during the 1972 IFYGL program.
