How sensitive are polar cod early life stages to a changing Arctic?
Embryonic exposure to produced water can cause cardiac toxicity and deformations in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) larvae
Regular discharges of produced water from the oil and gas industry represents the largest direct discharge of effluent into the marine environment worldwide. Organic compound classes typically reported in produced water include saturated hydrocarbons, monoaromatic and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (MAHs...
Accumulation and toxicity of monoaromatic petroleum hydrocarbons in early life stages of cod and haddock
A multitude of recent studies have documented the detrimental effects of crude oil exposure on early life stages of fish, including larvae and embryos. While polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), particularly alkyl PAHs, are often considered the main cause of observed toxic effects, other crude o...

FORTRAN: Factors influencing the formation, fate and transport of microplastic in marine coastal ecosystems
PLASTOX: Direct and indirect ecotoxicological impacts of microplastics on marine organisms
Microplastic properties and environmental conditions influence PAH sorption and bioavailability to copepods
Many marine species ingest microplastic (MP), exhibiting extended periods of MP gut retention in some cases. Organic pollutants associated with MP may present an alternative exposure route for these chemicals to marine species. However, the effect of PAH sorption to MP on PAH bioavailability remains...
Degradation of plastic microfibres, leaching of additive chemicals and interaction with persistent organic pollutants in polar environments
Synthetic microplastic fibres (MPFs) are increasingly being reported as one of the dominant forms of microplastic pollution in aquatic environments. Clothing and textiles produced from synthetic fibres such as polyester (PES), polyacrylic (PAC) and nylon (PA) are considered some of the main sources ...
