Anthropogenic (PBDE) and naturally-produced (MeO-PBDE) brominated compound levels in Bizerte Lagoon clams (Ruditapes decussatus): Levels and human health risk assessment
Abstract Information on the occurrence of organobrominated compounds in bivalves from Tunisia is scarce. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of these compounds in clams from Tunisia. The aim of this study is to measure natural and synthetic organobrominated compound concentrations and evaluate congener distribution and pollution sources in a clam species ( Ruditapes decussatus ) from three sites of the Bizerte Lagoon. Total synthetic organobrominated pollutant levels in clam ranged from 34.8 to 188ngg −1 lw. For natural organobrominated compounds, concentrations varied from 18.2 to 49.5ngg −1 lw. Total PBDE and MeO-PBDE concentrations in clams from the Bizerte Lagoon were similar or slightly lower than those reported for other species from other locations around the world. The health risks associated with the consumption of this species were assessed and posed no threat to public health concerning PBDE intakes. Highlights Organobromine compounds levels in clams from Tunisia were reported. Contamination was comparable to those from other locations around the world. This is the first human health risk assessment related to clams consumption for the Tunisian population. Human consumption of Ruditapes decussatus shows no threat to public health concerning PBDE intakes.
