COT statement on organic chlorinated and brominated contaminants in shellfish, farmed and wild fish

The Food Standards Agency completed two surveys of a range of fish species consumed in the UK. The COT reviewed the toxicological properties of the organic contaminants and considered whether the survey results formed a basis for the Agency to amend its current advice on fish consumption. It decided that, based on these surveys, the Agency did not need to change its advice on oily fish.
