  • Contamination of the Great Lakes has led to the bioaccumulation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in fish, particularly the larger predator species prized by sport-fishers [ 1 2 3 ] . These compounds are synthetic organochlorines (OC) that, along with dichlorodiphenyl-dichloroethene (DDE), comprise the bulk of OC residues found in human tissues [ 4 ] , and some of the highest body burdens of PCBs in humans are found among fish consumers [ 5 6 7 8 ] . Consumption of these contaminated Great Lakes fish has been associated with several adverse reproductive outcomes including shortened menstrual cycle [ 9 ] , reduced fecundability [ 10 11 ] , reduced neonatal size [ 12 ] , and neurologic disorders [ 13 14 15 ] .
