No:12, 06170, Yenimahalle, Ankara, Turkey DOI : 10.4194/trjfas.2010.0308 Viewed : 4196 - Downloaded : 3678 Samples of three mainly consumed three edible fish species, whiting, horse mackerel and anchovy, from the Black Sea were analyzed for PCDD/Fs, dioxin-like PCBs and indicator PCBs. The results showed that PCDD/F-TEQ, dl-PCBs-TEQ and indicator PCBs concentrations ranged between 0.28-0.91 pg/g fresh weight product, 0.56-1.89 pg/g fresh weight product and 3.05-10.94 ng/g fresh weight product, respectively. It is observed that with increasing fat content of the fishes most of congeners’ concentrations increased. Measured values were below the maximum residue levels indicated in the EU Commission Regulation “Setting maximum levels for certain contaminants in foodstuffs”.
