|Abstract:||Food consumption is by far the main exposure route for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for the general popolation, and fish and fishery products seem to be the main contributors to the total dietary intakeof these pollutants. In recent years some investigations have suggested that the farmed fish may be more significantly contaminated than wild fish, because of polluted feed. this study measured the levels of PCBs in wild and farmed sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.), one of the most valuable and popularfish in the Italian diet, and assessed the exposure to these pollutants through fish intake.|
