|Description||Concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenylether flame retardants (PBDEs), and selected metals (zinc, lead, cadmium, and arsenic) were measured in several fish species collected from six locations in the Spokane River during 2005. The primary objectives were to (1) evaluate trends over time based on previous studies, and (2) provide data to the Spokane Regional Health District and the Washington State Department of Health for their use in determining if a review or revision to the current fish consumption advisory is warranted. The report includes an evaluation of spatial trends and puts the results in a statewide perspective.|
