Abstract

The primary source of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) exposure is the diet, mainly fish. Seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and seabream (Sparus aurata) are among the most consumed sea fish in Italy. Fish from Northern Italy lakes like perch (Perca fluviatilis) is of particular importance in terms of consumption volume, while Mediterranean shad (Alosa agone) and European whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus) represent niche consumption. These species too could be a cause of consumer exposure to PFAS. The study investigated the presence of PFASs in the above-mentioned fish species through LC-HRMS analysis. Only PFBA and PFOS were found both in lake and sea fish while PFBS was found only in lake fish. The found concentrations were used to estimate intake of PFOS, the only detected molecule of the four discussed in the last EFSA report. The Tolerable Weekly Intake of 4.4 ng kg−1 b.w. per week was never exceeded also for the 99th percentile consumer
