Abstract: Toxaphene, a suspected carcinogen, is a broad spectrum chlorinated pesticide. The objective of this study was to provide information on the toxicological risks posed by toxaphene to the consumer of fish from European waters. The levels of 3 toxaphene congeners in various fish species from different geographical locations were determined. These data were then used to provide information on the exposure of toxaphene to the consumer of fish.
