This report contains data on contaminant loads found in fish tissues during the PERCH project (2002-2009; UWF)

It also addresses pre-sinking screening for PCBs for the ex-Oriskany Reef (http://www.uwf.edu/cedb/Oriskany) (link). The purpose of this document is to provide a information to people who eat fish so that they can make decisions that affect their exposure to toxic materials.
