This report studies the distribution and fate of contaminants such as mercury (Hg), cyclic volatile methylated siloxanes (cVMS: D4, D5, D6), brominated flame retardants (BFR, PBDEs), alkylphenols, organic phosphorous flame retardants (oPFR), poly- and perfluorated alkyl substances (PFAS), new brominated flame retardants (nBFR) and UV-chemicals. Samples of the pelagic food web of Lake Mjøsa (zooplankton, Mysis, vendace, European smelt and brown trout) and the top predator brown trout in Lake Femunden are studied. Results are compared to environmental quality standards (EQS) and the time trends for major contaminants are studied.
