As for Baltic herring
, the consumption of large specimens with a length of more than 17 cm (and age of more than five years) should be avoided or constrained (especially by pregnant women) because of its rather large dioxin content (Fig.
bacteria which are able to degrade oil hydrocarbons from the content of intestinal tract of plaice and the Baltic herring
In the coastal group, Baltic herring
or salmon was the primary fish species being consumed by 10 subjects, but no subjects in the Kuusankoski group chose these species as the primary species.
Though most of the studies tested laboratory animals, a few looked at the suppression of immunity in wildlife-such as harbor seals that had eaten Baltic herring
tainted with high concentrations of organochlorines (SN: 7/2/94, p.
In the 1970s some investigations on the concentrations of lead in certain species of Baltic fish, mainly Baltic herring
(Clupea harengus membras L.) and cod (Gadus morhua callaris L.), were performed (e.g.
The Council limited reductions for the Eastern Baltic herring
stock to 27% (instead of 33%), apart from the Gulf of Bothnia, and to 16% in the Gulf of Riga (instead of 21%), but the Commission had to accept the status quo on Gulf of Finland salmon instead of the 29% reduction proposed, as well as a 51% reduction (instead of 79%) for the stock in the main basin.
The EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council will increase the cod-fishing quota for Estonia in the Baltic sea while reducing the Baltic herring
and sprat quota, reports LETA.
The modification concerns three kinds of fish: salmon from the Baltic Sea, big Baltic herring
and predatory fish from lakes.
Juvenile Baltic herring
exhibited a similar functional response to greater food densities (Arrhenius and Hansson, 1999).
Though both groups exhibited identical baseline values for the different factors, those fed Baltic herring
quickly distinguished themselves once the study began.
