|Abstract:||Visceral fat from Black-footed Albatrosses, Diomedea nigripes, and
Laysan Albatrosses, D. immutabilis, from Midway Atoll, North Pacific Ocean, in
1969 contained appreciable residues of DDT, DDE, and PCBs, and measurable
quantities of DDD, dieldrin, and mercury. Greater residues in Black-footed Albatrosses
may have resulted from scavenging. No gamma-emitting radionuclides
were detected. No decreases in eggshell weight occurred in either species between
1910 and 1969.
