Organotin compounds in the British Columbia environment / by C.L. Garrett, J.A. Shrimpton.: En40-240-1/98-03E-PDF

"This report provides a summary of information on organotin compounds in the British Columbia environment, obtained as a result of studies conducted by Environment Canada, Pacific and Yukon Region between 1984 and 1995. These studies were conducted to determine the presence of organotin in the vicinity of known or suspected sources of release to the coastal environment of British Columbia. Although the studies focused primarily on butyltin compounds, limited information on cyclohexyltin and phenyltin compounds was also obtained. The objective of this report was to document existing information on organotin compounds in British Columbia with respect to levels in the environment; past and present uses; current legislation and guidelines controlling the use and release of these compounds; and, where possible, the efficacy of these measures in reducing releases and improving environmental quality. A general overview of the toxicity and environmental levels of these compounds in other areas of Canada and the world has been provided to allow the reader to put the data for British Columbia into perspective"--Abstract, page i.
