ABSTRACT
This paper presents the results of studies on the content of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB`s) in the fat of wild-boars shot in 10 selected areas of north-eastern Poland. All examined fat samples contained polychlorinated biphenyls. The mean level of PCB`s in fat samples collected from wild-boars was 5.1 µg/kg. The highest mean levels of PCB`s were noted in wild-boars from the Supraśl and Miłomłyn area. The presented data reveal that the levels of polychlorinated biphenyls were much lower than tolerated values for nutritive products, and at present there are no hygienic and toxicologic reservations. These studies illustrate the exposure of selected animal species and indirectly humans to these xenobiotics in north-eastern Poland.
