    Abstract : Delfiner är utsatta för många antropogena hot, där en av dessa är miljögifter. Bioackumulering och biomagnifiering uppstår ofta på grund av delfinernas höga position i näringskedjan och miljögifternas persistens, vilket resulterar i höga nivåer av föroreningar i späck. Detta kan i sin tur leda till olika toxiska effekter. READ MORE
