The aim of the present study was to assess the environmental quality of Orbetello lagoon (Tyrrhenian coast, Italy), using a biomonitoring method based on measuring organochlorinated pollutants in the Anguilla anguilla, chosen as sentinel organism, and remote sensing data obtained by elaboration of Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper (ETM) data of 2002. Polychlorinated biphenyls and organochlorine pesticides were determined by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry in muscle of European eels captured in seven sites having different levels of pollution in Orbetello lagoon. Remote sensing data and chemical analysis showed the Albegna river as a probable vehicle of pesticides (hexachlorocyclohexanes). © 2009, SAGE Publications. All rights reserved.

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to assess the environmental quality of Orbetello lagoon (Tyrrhenian coast, Italy), using a biomonitoring method based on measuring organochlorinated pollutants in the Anguilla anguilla, chosen as sentinel organism, and remote sensing data obtained by elaboration of Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper (ETM) data of 2002. Polychlorinated biphenyls and organochlorine pesticides were determined by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry in muscle of European eels captured in seven sites having different levels of pollution in Orbetello lagoon. Remote sensing data and chemical analysis showed the Albegna river as a probable vehicle of pesticides (hexachlorocyclohexanes). © 2009, SAGE Publications. All rights reserved.
