Concentrations of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), a metabolite of several sulfonated perfluoroorganic compounds, were measured in oysters collected from 77 locations in the Gulf of Mexico and Chesapeake Bay of the United States. PFOS was detected in oysters collected from 51 of the 77 locations at concentrations ranging from < 42 to 1,225 ng/g on a dry weight basis. This study provides baseline data for future monitoring programs to examine long-term trends in concentrations of PFOS.
