Did PCB's Save the Stripers? A Fish Story - New York Times article about the fact that striped bass are thriving in the Hudson River because PCBs deter fishing, even though PCBs actually are harmful to the fish. However, fish in Newark Harbor have adapted to contaminants. [Requires free registration.] (March 25, 2003)

Unknown Contaminant Found In Seabird Eggs - Researchers found an unidentified organohalogen contaminant in the eggs of Atlantic and Pacific Ocean seabirds. If a marine organism is the source, this would be the first instance of a naturally produced organohalogen accumulating in the eggs of wild birds. (December 11, 1998)
