Dear Ulf,

My understanding is that the persistent organic pollutants have a half 
life of 15 years. If they are transported globally, I am not convinced 
that it is by the thermohaline circulation, which cycles in around 1500 
years. If there is such a widespread dispersal, this is maybe through 
the food chain and the movement of fish and marine mammals. Any ideas?

Best regards,
