Abstract

The Nuuk harbor is the largest industrial port in Greenland. It is polluted by a number of contaminants including tributyltin (TBT), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Here we analyzed melanomacrophage center (MMC) responses in the spleen and kidney of shorthorn sculpins (Myoxocephalus scorpius) from the harbor and three reference sites in Nuuk, West Greenland. The number and area of splenic MMCs in fish from the most polluted station were significantly lower than those from the less polluted stations (p
