Abstract

Concentrations of organochlorines in the blubber of 27 harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) collected from 1986 to 1988 in Danish North Sea and Baltic waters and two harbour porpoises collected in 1988 in West Greenland are reported. Comparisons with previous Danish findings reveal a lower contamination level than in the 1970s and early 1980s. The contamination level of two adult West Greenland animals was markedly lower than in Danish animals.
