||Responding to the recommendations of the Lake Michign Interstate Pesticide Committee, the author aimed to establish baseline data on polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) and DDT in Lake Michigan fish in 1971. Thirteen species of fish taken from 14 regions of Lake Michigan in the fall of 1971 were analyzed for PCB's and DDT analogs. Mean wet-weight concentrations of PCB's similar to Aroclor 1254 ranged from 2.7 ppm in rainbow smelt to 15 ppm in lake trout. Most trout and salmon longer than 12 inches contained PCB's at concentrations greater than the tolerance level of 5 ppm established by the Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
