Abstract Monitoring data have shown that pesticides are ubiquitous in the water environment. It is now well established that pesticides can move into areas many thousands of miles removed from the site of application as illustrated by measurable levels of DDT in antarctic penguins which have never been directly exposed to this pesticide. As with many other manmade pollutants, it has been found that pesticides can overpower nature's capacity to dilute and detoxify noxious chemicals. Based on this, a number of actions were suggested to protect the environment.
