The data contained in the two spreadsheets in this dataset represent biliary PAH metabolite concentrations from selected species collected in the northern Gulf of Mexico (NGOM) during longline sampling. The 2011 data were analyzed at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC). All data from 2012 on were analyzed at Mote Marine Laboratory (MML). Sample collection and methods are described in Snyder et al. 2015, PAH-exposure in Gulf of Mexico Demersal Fishes, Post-Deepwater Horizon. Environmental Science and Technology, DOI 10.1021/acs.est.5b01870.
These data were collected to document PAH concentrations of the 16 major PAHs and their alkylated homologs in liver and muscle samples post Deepwater Horizon.
