No adverse effects were observed on survival, growth, and reproduction of brook trout exposed for 71 weeks to 0.94 micrograms/l and lower concentrations of the polychlorinated biphenyl Aroclor 1254 (P = 0.05). Survival and growth to 90 days of alevin-juveniles from exposed parents were also unaffected (P = 0.05). Polychlorinated biphenyl concentrations in the brook trout were directly proportional to the water exposure concentrations (P = 0.05). The PCB tissue concentrations appeared to have reached a steady state by the first sampling after 14 weeks of exposure. The PCB residues (wet-tissue basis) in chronically exposed fish were approximately 2 micrograms/g in the fillet and 9 micrograms/g in the 'whole body' (entire fish minus one fillet and the gonads) at the highest water concentration, 0.94 micrograms/l. The higher residue in the whole body compared to the corresponding fillet was due to the higher fat content of the former.
