Description 
Summary

TBT Imposex Data: The aim of this work was to obtain a synoptic picture of the degree of contamination by tributylin products around the Grampian coastline by looking at their effects on dog whelk populations. Various sites were sampled over a three year period, with some sites being visited only once and others annually. A total of 26 sites were sampled once per year; of these sites 15 were visited only once, 6 for 2 years and 5 for 3 years. Individual data are stored on hard copy data sheets and summarised on computer.
