Excerpt
Introduction: The exposure of aquatic organisms to carcinogenic chemicals has long been recognized. Considerable attention has been paid to the possibility of cancer in aquatic species as a result of exposure to environmental contaminants (I). However, less attention has been paid to the direct public health consequences of eating carciwgen-wntaminated aquatic foodstuffs. Recently, the discovery of high tumor frequencies in certain wild fish populations has focused public attention on carcinogen contamination of the aquatic environment and heightened awareness of the potential problems of consuming carcinogen-wntaminated fish. The potential magnitude of the problem is shown by recent risk estimates, which have indicated that people eating sports fish from the Great Lakes may be exposed & a i o g e & c r ifsrokm pesticides and PCBs that is orden of magnitude higher than their risk from drinking Great Lakes water (2).
