PBMS report shows perfluorinated compounds have increased in gannet eggs

The PBMS has recently published its latest report from work that involved measuring the concentrations of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in the eggs of the northern gannet, Morus bassanus, a sentinel for marine contamination. Eggs were collected from the Ailsa Craig (Irish Sea/eastern Atlantic) and Bass Rock (North Sea) colonies off the UK coast collected between 1977 and 2014 and analysed for a range of PFCs.
