[en] The main objective of the present study was to determine the
current concentrations of PCDDs, PCDFs and PCBs in dolphins from a region of high industrialization and urbanization in the Southern Hemisphere. Since most of these compounds biomagnify in food chains and changes in ratios of stable isotopes of nitrogen (15N/14N) have been used to elucidate trophic relationships 7, measurements of these isotopes have been carried out in marine tucuxi dolphins and their prey in Guanabara Bay. Stable isotopes were measured, firstly, to quantitatively assess the trophic level of the dolphin, and, secondly, to provide information for future human risk assessment investigations related to fish consumption
