The highest levels of dioxins and PCBs were found in fish liver in EU between 1995 and 2010. Between 2012 and 2014 in Slovenia the highest levels were found in fish meat, following meat and fat tissues of cattle and sheep. Food producers and competent authorities should proactively make efforts to reduce dioxins and PCBs in feed and food.
