Abstract
    Twenty eel from various inland water bodies in Flanders (Belgium) were analysed for a total of 52 VOCs. The most prominent VOCs are the BTEX and a number of chlorinated compounds such as chloroform and tetrachloroethene. The observed levels could be linked to the major emission sources and the present study gives new evidence that combustion of fossil fuels is a major source of BTEX in the environment. The concentrations in eel seem to be a reflection of the actual concentrations in their environment. For fish from the same location similar patterns and concentrations were observed, and the concentrations agree with what can be expected from those of the water column. Generally speaking, the observed concentrations do not seem to pose a threat for organisms. More definite statements will, however, require a larger dataset. The study suggests that yellow eel can possibly be used as a biomonitor or sentinel organism for VOCs.
