Arsenic exists in many different chemical forms in the marine environment, of which the water-soluble arsenicals are well studied. The toxicity of arsenic compounds depends on their chemical form, with inorganic arsenic being the most toxic. Knowledge regarding arsenolipids (lipid soluble arsenic compounds) is limited. Although arsenolipids are present in considerable quantities in fish oil (reported concentrations range from 4 to 15 mg As/kg) and other marine samples, the structures of these compounds are essentially unknown. The revised project aims to generate knowledge on arsenolipids in fish oil and other marine samples, with a main aim of developing methods for the determination of arsenolipids in marine samples using capillary HPCL-ICPMS and capillary HPLC-ESI MS/MS. In addition, some of the major arsenolipids in fish oil will be characterised and the occurrence of arsenolipids in marine products will be documented in a preliminary study. The revised project will generate knowledge on arsenolipids as a potential risk factor in the food value chain; Industrial fish -> Fish oil -> Fish feed -> Cultured fish -> Consumer. The results obtained within the project will be of importance to national and international food authorities in their evaluation and risk assessment of the consequences of arsenolipids for food safety and fish welfare. Furthermore, the results will also be of value for the aquaculture industry and the fishery sector.
