Hypotheses on the role of arctic drift ice in collecting pollutants and transporting them over great distances to melting regions are presented. This accumulation is viewed as negative entropy. Both abiotic and biotic transports are considered. Paradoxically, this transport feeds a region of relatively high primary production and exacerbates the bioaccumulation in the food web. This is a serious matter for the arctic peoples whose nutrition is gained through fatty foods. The state-of-the-art is reviewed to identify knowledge gaps, and suggestions are made to conduct relevant research.
