Title: NWHI Whole blood and Serum contaminant data
Short Name: NWHI contaminant data
Status: Completed
Abstract:

This data set contains information on persistent organic pollutant analysis of Hawaiian monk seal whole blood and blubber samples from the northwestern Hawaiian islands (samples collected 1998-2001). Samples were collected from both live animals during handling for other purposes (health assessment or telemetry device application) and dead animals through necropsy. Data is available in excel spreadsheets.

Purpose:

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is the lead agency responsible for the recovery of the Hawaiian monk seal. Persistent organic pollutants have been shown to cause detrimental effects in various body systems of other mammal, marine mammal, and pinniped species at high concentrations. Contaminants in blood, serum, and blubber of Hawaiian monk seals were measured in order to assess the concentration of select contaminants on Hawaiian monk seals to see if these compounds may be at levels that are shown to have effects in other species.
