Gills and skin of mirror carp were exposed separately to Clophen A-50 in the concentration of 200 µg/dm3. After one hour, the content of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) was determined in the wet weight of the blood, muscles, and the skin as well as in the lipids of these tissues. It turned out that 63% ofthe PCB were absorbed through the gills, while only 32% - through the skin.
