The study was initiated to determine present levels of pesticides in Lake Michigan fish, sediments, and water. Data was collected on six species of Lake Michigan fish (yellow perch, chubs, carp, coho salmon, alewife, and brown trout); open lake and tributary stream and ravine sediments; and open water, tributary stream, and sewage treatment plant effluents. Samples analyzed for pesticides were selected from the following list: Heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, dieldrin, methoxychlor, lindane, aldrin, endrin, DDT and its analogs. Additional analyses were accomplished for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP), and di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DOP). The data indicate that PCB's were found at levels as high or higher than DDT in Lake Michigan water, sediment, and fish.
