Organotin (OT) compounds have been used as active biocides in antifouling paints since the early 1960s, and OTs released into the water column from coatings applied to boat hulls have caused deleterious effects in nontarget marine organisms, such as oysters, bivalves, and gastropodae.
OT concentrations were measured in tissues and organs of various whales stranded along the coasts of Thailand, and the current status of OT pollution and body distribution are discussed based on these measurements.
