The data contained in this spreadsheet represent bile PAH metabilote determinations from selected species collected in the northern Gulf of Mexico (NGM) during longline sampling. The data were analyzed at the Nortwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC), using methods described in “Murawski et al. 2014. Prevalence of skin lesions and PAH concentrations in Gulf of Mexico Fishes, Post-Deepwater Horizon. Transactions of the American Fisheries Society (DOI:10.1080/00028487.2014.911205)”.
These data were collected to document PAH metabolite concentrations of 3 major PAHs collected post Deepwater Horizon. Data are presented for three PAH metabolite classes: napthalene, phenanthrene and benzo[a]pyrene.
