Abstract Discharges to Bellingham Bay (WA) have led to high sediment concentrations of mercury and PCBs. The study sampled muscle tissue from crab (Cancer magister) and littleneck clams (Tapes japonica, Protothaca staminea) from the bay to evaluate potential levels of bioaccumulation of these and other contaminants. The muscle tissue was analyzed for PCBs, other organochlorine compounds, cadmium, arsenic, lead, and mercury. Clams were also tested for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Overall levels of contaminants examined were low compared with concentrations in tissue taken from areas with known sediment contamination.
