Pilot investigation of perfluorinated compounds in river water, sediment, soil and fish in Tianjin, China.
Bull Environ Contam Toxicol. 2011 Aug; 87(2):152-7.BE

Abstract

Detectable PFCs could be found in all samples. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) was the major PFC in river water, while perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) was dominant in sediment and were 17- to 153-fold higher than those in water. PFCs concentrations in soil were little higher than those in sediment. In fish muscles PFOS showed the highest concentrations. Generally, PFC concentrations in fish were in the following rank order: crucian carp > silver carp> common carp. We suggested that there may be constant and diffuse pollution sources in Tianjin. Point sources also appeared to make significant contribution in the present study.
