Distribution of individual PCB congeners in samples from the Adriatic Sea (■) and the Tyrrhenian () Sea. Species from the Adriatic Sea were more contaminated than those collected in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Number of positive samples (n) for individual PCB congener in the Adriatic Sea: PCB 28 (n = 6), PCB 52 (n = 8), PCB 101 (n = 6), PCB 118 (n = 7), PCB 138 (n = 14), PCB 153 (n = 18), PCB 180 (n = 15). Number of positive samples (n) for individual PCB congener in the Tyrrhenian Sea: PCB 28 (n = 18), PCB 52 (n = 4), PCB 101 (n = 12), PCB 118 (n = 7), PCB 138 (n = 5), PCB 153 (n = 11), PCB 180 (n = 11).
