Brominated flame retardants are found in a variety of common products from fabrics containing polyurethane foams, to plastic in items such as televisions, computers, cars, and construction materials. Although BFRs are considered `new' contaminants, they were detected as possible contaminants in fish as far back as 1981. The increasing PBDE concentrations found in human breast milk from around 1970 to around 1998 has led to increasing concern for these POPs as an environmental threat to human health (Noren and Meironyte, 2000).

Current EU legislation on pesticides in feed and feed ingredients includes persistent organochlorine pesticides such as DDT, chlordane isomers, toxaphene isomers, endrin/dieldrin, aldrin, nonachlor isomers, heptachlorepoxide, hexachlorhexane (HCH), hexachlorbenzene (HCB), and endosulfan isomers (EC, 2002). Most persistent organochlorine pesticides have been, or are in the process of, being phased out in Europe and the USA. However, they can still being used in tropical and subtropical regions on crops from which vegetable meal and oil are produced.

2004). , 2004). Biomagnification seems to decrease with increasing chlorination among 160 PCB congeners in fillets of farmed salmon (Carlson and Hites, 2005). , 2003). , 2005). , 2005). , 2004a). Biotransformation of higher brominated PBDEs into lower brominated PBDE congeners is an important factor in the retention estimations of the PBDE congeners. The actual carry-over of low brominated BDEs such as tetra-BDE-47 is lower than reported due to the formation of new tetra-BDE from higher brominated PBDEs.
