Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry was used to analyze residues in fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) which were exposed to non-disinfected and bromine chloride disinfected wastewater effluent. A series of brominated organic chemicals was identified in the fish exposed to the bromine chloride disinfected effluent but were not detected in fish exposed to the non-disinfected wastewater. Two mechanisms for the presence of these residues include the aqueous bromination of precursors followed by bioaccumulation of the products, and the bromination of precursors by the fish.
