Skin-on coho salmon fillets from Lakes Huron, Michigan, Erie and Ontario were analyzed under a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the states of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Results indicate that the highest concentrations of pesticides and industrial compounds occurred in coho from Lake Ontario and lowest in Lake Erie. Tissue residue levels were below U.S. Food and Drug Administration action levels for all compounds with the exception of mirex and PCB in Lake Ontario. Mirex exceeded the action level of 0.1 microgram/g in each of the 3 composite samples from Lake Ontario. The Lake Ontario samples also exceeded the 2.0 microgram/g action level for total PCB.
