Abstract The purpose of the study was to compare the types and prevalences of idiopathic lesions of the liver previously observed in English sole from Commencement Bay with those from selected nonurban embayments. The number and prevalences of different types of idiopathic liver lesions were generally greater in English sole from Commencement Bay compared to the nonurban areas sampled in the study. The prevalences of these lesions in Commencement Bay sole are relatively low compared to other polluted areas ('hot spots') in Puget Sound (e.g., the Duwamish Waterway and Eagle Harbor). In contrast, the prevalences of renal and respiratory lesions were greater at the non-urban sites. These types of results underscore the necessity of clarifying lesion etiology if lesions are to be used as indicators of environmental quality.
