Residues of chlorinated hydrocarbons in the adipose tissue of the antarctic pinnipeds



Residues of chlorinated hydrocarbons in the adipose tissue of the antarctic pinnipeds



Polish Polar Research 8(2): 189-196



In 1979-1981 at the King George Island samples of adipose tissue of 5 pinniped species [Lobodon carcinophagus, Leptonychotes weddelli, Hydrurga leptonyx, Mirounga leonina and Arctocephalus gazella] were collected and the contents of chlorinated hydrocarbons (CHs) were determined with the gas chromatography method. The highest values were recorded in the leopard seal (432.3-614.7 ppb DDT), the second highest values in the mature elephant seal (73.4 ppb DDT) and the third in the Weddell seal (54.4-69.1 ppb DDT). In the Weddell seal the highest level of HCH content (23.3-32.1 ppb) was recorded. A decrease in the content of pp'DDE in the adipose tissue of crabeater seal in successive years was recorded, the values being 36.8 ppb in 1979, 24.4 ppb in 1980 and 15.3 ppb in 1981, as well as an increase in the concentration of HCH (15.3 ppb in 1980 and 27.4 ppb in 1981). The contents of CHs in the adipose tissue of Antarctic pinnipeds are 100-1000 times lower than those in the Arctic seals.
