Residues of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in fish and water from Sultanate of Oman
Concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) were determined in the muscles and the skin of two fish species, Indian mackerel ( Rastrelliger kanagurta ) Indian scad ( Decaptens russelli ) and marine water collected from different places around the Sultanate of Oman, in February and July 1995. Pyrene was the most frequently detected compound with concentration ranging from 42.6 to 405.2 mug kg-1, while benzo(k)fluoranthene was the least frequently detected compound with concentrations ranging from 98.8 to 227.9 mug kg-1. Residues of PAH detected in fish samples have followed no particular pattern and were rather irregular. Concentrations of PAH detected in the two fish species are relatively higher than concentrations detected in seafood around the Gulf Area.
