    ments signed the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (6), which contains provisions for the protection of human health and for mon-itoring trends in the concentrations and effects of persistent toxic substances. In , the Science Advisory Board to the International Joint Commission (IJC) recom-mended that the parties to the Canada–U.S. of virtual elimination of persistent toxic substances resulting from human activ-ity, particularly those which bioaccumulate, from the Great Lakes Basiri, so as to protect and ensure the health and integrity of the Great Lakes ecosystem" (U.S. EPA, ). The review went on to state, however, that "many of the reductions made in releases of.

    The Great Lakes have faced various threats for years, from industrial pollution to invasive species, but another challenge worries many researchers these days — the emerging chemical threat.   Toxic Contaminants and Ecosystem Health: A Great Lakes Focus begins with a commentary on the protection of six groups of Great Lakes biota (phytoplankton, zooplankton, benthos, fish, aquatic birds and mammals, and humans), the effects of toxic substances on their well-being, and the problems researchers encountered in understanding such toxic.

      The unique risks posed by PBTSs were first acknowledged by the governments of the United States and Canada in the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (), which stated: "The discharge of any or all persistent toxic substances (should) be virtually eliminated" (International Joint Commission United States and Canada, ). Long- and short-term levels and trends of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) and walleye (Sander vitreus) from the Canadian waters of the Great Lakes are examined using the bootstrap resampling method in light of the Great Lakes Strategy (GLS) objective of decrease in concentrations by 25% during – This objective has been set as an.

The Great Lakes Binational Toxics Strategy, signed by the United States and Canada inwas an agreement aimed to reduce several persistent toxic pollutants, including certain POPs, in the Great Lakes Basin over a year period.

The strategy provided a guide for governments and stakeholders toward the virtual elimination of 12 identified. worked together to compile the scientific literature on the levels, trends and effects of persistent toxic chemicals in the Great Lakes basin.

This has resulted in a two volume technical document entitled Toxic Chemicals in the Great Lakes and Associated Effects. Volume I of this report is divided into four parts. Substantial decreases in contaminant levels in Great Lakes top predator fish have been noted for many chemicals banned in the s and s, including PCBs, DDT, chlorodane, toxaphene, aldrin, dieldrin, and mirex (State of the Great Lakes ), although recent data suggest that contaminant levels are now decreasing more slowly or remaining.

The Canada-United States Strategy for the Virtual Elimination of Persistent Toxic Substances in the Great Lakes Basin, known as the Great Lakes Binational Toxics Strategy (PDF) (24pp, kb) is available for your information.

The Strategy provides a framework for actions to reduce or eliminate persistent toxic substances, especially those which bioaccumulate, from the Great Lakes. S ignificant succ esses in reducing persistent toxic substances in the Great Lakes include cleanup of contaminated sediment sites at Great Lakes harbors, reduced levels of PCBs, dioxins and DDT, and improved sport fisheries.
