Entry ID: ECA028

Abstract: These data set regards the average p,p'-DDE and HCB concentration (0.86±0.98 and 0.37±0.17 ng g–1 wet wt. respectively) measured in krill samples collected from the Ross Sea (71°20’S– 72° 331’S/170° 22’E–178° 04’E) in January 2000. Average PCB concentrations in these samples were much higher (167±85 ng g–1 wet wt.), and congener- specific PCB profiles showed a prevalence of low-chlorinated isomers ... View entire text
