    Abstract

    Investigated is a wide range of pollutants in the top five consumed fish in the Netherlands (salmon, trout, tilapia, pangasius and shrimps). Farmed fish samples were collected from different sources (supermarkets, fish stores, markets and suppliers for restaurants) and analysed for PCDD/Fs, PCBs, organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), PBDEs, HBCD, PFCs, heavy metals and residues of antibiotics. Furthermore, fish feeds and ingredients were collected and investigated for mycotoxins and toxaphene residues
