Session Title

Toxic Contaminants in Salish Sea Biota

Location

Description

In 2004, the Washington State Department of Health issued a consumption advisory for northern pikeminnow, yellow perch and cutthroat trout in Lake Washington. King County has initiated a long term monitoring program to track concentrations of PCBs and other contaminants in Lake Washington fish tissues to ensure this advisory remains relevant. The monitoring program has expanded the list of sampled species to include smallmouth bass, an important recreational species. This presentation will briefly summarize the methods and PCB results from 2002, 2010 and 2014 for northern pikeminnow, yellow perch, and small mouth bass in Lake Washington. More details can be found in the associated poster of the same title.
