The Michigan Fish Contaminant Monitoring Program (FCMP) has been in existence since Prior tofish contaminant monitoring studies were conducted primarily to address specific problems. Inthe FCMP was redesigned to allow a better assessment of chemical contamination in fish from the state's surface waters.

in fish. Contaminated fish are the primary source of these chemicals to most humans and semi-aquatic wildlife, and thus are the cause of widespread fish consumption advisories.

Consequently, interpretation of spatial and temporal trends of these chemicals is critical to the planning and assessment of regulatory policies in the Great Lakes region. In Illinois, contaminant levels in sport fish are monitored through a cooperative effort between the Departments of Agriculture, Natural Resources, and 1984.

PCB, DDT, and dieldrin residues have also decreased in coho salmon fillets from Lakes Michigan and Erie (DeVault et al.

) Contaminant concentrations in bloater and other fish species in the Great Lakes have also shown decreases, although the rate of decrease was, in general, slower in the '80s than in the '70s (D'ItriHesselberg et al.

PCBs have been included in several major fish contaminant monitoring programs. A summary of the National Contaminant Biomonitoring Program (NCBP) data conducted by the U.S.

Fish and Wildlife Service, from throughindicated a significant downward trend in the geometric mean concentration in whole fish samples of total PCBs.

Freshwater fish contaminant monitoring program tests fish and fresh water for toxic chemicals. Contaminants in sediment cores tests core samples from three lakes annually for persistent chemical trends. These chemicals include lead, mercury, and organic contaminants, such as PAHs, depending on the year of the study.

The department stopped monitoring in because of “minimal likelihood of movement” of PBB off the site, according to Nick Swiger of the DEQ. One monitoring well in the shallow aquifer registered a low-level PBB detection inbut nothing before or since.

The Chemical Committee is also involved in compiling and reviewing contaminant data collected during the Lake Superior Year of Intensive Monitoring, which occurs every five years as a part of the U.S.

Environmental Protection Agency and Enivironment Canada's Coordinated Science and Monitoring Initiative (CSMI). T he objectives of the fish contaminant monitoring and advisory program include, but are not limited to, protection of fish and Lake Michigan carp from the lower Fox River catfish, carp, and white bass from parts upper Fox River.

FDA’s tolerance level was reduced to 2 ppm in These early advisories were based on the percentage of. The contaminants in fish that are monitored in Indiana are Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), metals – (cadmium, lead, mercury and selenium), Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) and legacy organochlorine pesticides.

Inthe state of Michigan filed a lawsuit against Hooker to clean up the site and prevent further contamination of ground and surface waters. Site cleanup started around and The bulk of contaminated surface soil was placed onsite in a lined landfill, which is maintained through a long-term management plan.

The NRSA Fish Tissue Study measured the levels of chemical contaminants in fish fillet samples to evaluate the potential health impacts for people who consume fish. This study was designed to be the first statistically based national assessment of contaminants in fish from U.S.

rivers. Total median lipid in the Great Lakes fish varied, with higher levels in Lakes Superior and Michigan fish (– g lipid/ g fish) compared with the St. Lawrence River fish ( g lipid/ g fish). This difference may be related to variation in fish location, species, and fillet preparation methods.

The DEQ has a cooperative lakes monitoring program (CLMP) that allows volunteer citizens to monitor indicators of water quality in their lakes. Volunteers tested Lake Fenton inMarl Lake in.

Soil contamination monitoring helps researchers identify patterns and trends in contaminant deposition, movement, and effect. Human-based pressures such as tourism, industrial activity, urban sprawl, construction work, and inadequate agriculture/forestry practices can contribute to and make worse soil contamination and lead to the soil becoming unfit for its intended use.

Sampling design for fish contaminant monitoring program in Lake Michigan: Habitat preference and movement of northern pike during fall and early winter in Potato Lake, Washburn County: Food habits of the cohort of largemouth bass in Spruce Lake, Contaminant levels in juvenile forage fish collected in and at 44 locations in the lower Great Lakes were assessed against wildlife protection guidelines.

Concentrations that exceeded the Forage Fish Contaminant Index were observed at 17 locations with PCBs being the principal contaminant .The Chippewa Ottawa Resource Authority (CORA) in Sault Ste.

Marie, Michigan, has been monitoring contaminant concentrations in the fillet portions of fish from the treaty-ceded waters of lakes Superior, Huron, and Michigan since The goal is to provide up to date consumption advice for their CORA member tribes.
