This report lists the concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), aliphatic hydrocarbons, and chlorinated hydrocarbons extracted from different size fractions of suspended particles in the St. Lawrence Estuary and the Saguenay Fjord in l990. (DBO).

A sampling cruise on the St. Lawrence River was carried out with the MV PETREL V in September 1988. The analytical methods used, and the data describing the distribution of the aliphatic hydrocarbons in the sediments are presented in the following report. This study was supported in part by the St. Lawrence Action Plan.
