The study of trends in trace contaminant concentrations in marine species has been of interest to the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) since the early 1970s. The investigation of temporal trends in contaminant levels in fish, both as monitors of their environment and from a human health concern, is a topic under consideration by the ICES Working Group on the Statistical Aspects of Trend Monitoring (WGSATM) as a part of the Cooperative ICES Monitoring Studies Programme (CMP). Many problems were encountered during the first attempts by WGSATM to analyse the CMP data. In addition to the presence of outlying observations and significant differences between years in their coefficients of regression of (log) contaminant level(s) on (log) biological variable(s), many inconsistencies were found in the annual sampling structures (Anon., 1987.....
