The Great Lakes are found to be highly perturbed systems, and previous environmental studies of the Lakes markedly deficient. The Great Lakes became the laboratory where the theory of endocrine disruptors was first formulated. Now a group of Great Lakes scientists, hosted by the International Joint Commission, has compiled the story of the trends in the concentrations and effects of persistent toxic substances on wildlife and humans.

The discussion highlights the better understanding derived from bird investigations initiated owing to the discovery of avian reproductive effects, in contrast to the challenges faced in research on marine mammals.

Clearly, the existing strategies for undertaking and managing Great Lakes toxicology should be reconsidered. The role, if any, of toxic substances in bringing about changes in the productivity and status of fishery resources, is not well understood.

At the 'Workshops on Persistent Toxic Substances and the Health of the Aquatic Community,' the Fish Biota Discussion Subgroup considered the issue of toxic substances by responding to the three questions addressed to it by the Workshop Organizing.

Persistent Organic Pollutant. Persistent organic pollutants are chemical substances that possess certain toxic properties and, unlike other pollutants, resist degradation, which makes them particularly harmful for human health and the environment.

Advisories and occasional health warnings restricting human consumption of certain species of Great Lakes sport fish have been announced by most of the eight States that border the lakes and spend money to stock those fish Drinking-water supplies in parts of the drainage basin have become contaminated by toxic substances.The presence of persistent toxic substances (PTS) in aquatic ecosystems is one of the most important environmental policy issues currently facing the Great Lakes states.

PTS, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), DDT, chlordane, and mercury, bioaccumulate to high levels in fish.(i) List No. 1 shall consist of all substances believed to be present within the water, sediment or aquatic biota of the Great Lakes System and (2) believed, singly or in synergistic or additive combination with another substance, to have acute or chronic toxic effects on aquatic, animal or human life.
