An h.p.l.c.-fluorescence technique was used to estimate relative concentrations of metabolites of xenobiotics in bile of 103 English sole (Parophrys vetulus) from both polluted and minimally polluted (reference) sites in Puget Sound, WA. Fish from polluted sites had concentrations of xenobiotics in bile with naphthalene-, phenanthrene- and benzo[a]pyrene-like fluorescence that averaged 9, 14 and 19 times, respectively, those of fish from reference sites. Within a polluted site, fish with liver lesions had significantly higher bile concentrations of xenobiotics with benzo[a]pyrene-like fluorescence than did fish without liver lesions. Individual metabolites of fluorene, phenanthrene, anthracene, biphenyl and dimethylnaphthalene were determined by g.l.c.-mass spectrometry in extracts of hydrolysed bile of three English sole from polluted waterways; concentrations ranged from 90 to 19000 ng/g, wet wt. Other xenobiotics were tentatively identified, but not quantified.
