The aquatic ecosystems of the Great Lakes are contaminated with a variety of compounds, some of which are considered reproductive toxicants.
Few studies of paternal fish consumption and reproductive endpoints have been undertaken and serve as the impetus for study.
Standardized telephone interviews were conducted with 2445 female members of the New York State Angler Cohort (82% response) to update reproductive profiles and to ascertain specific information on time-to-pregnancy (TTP).
The study sample includes women with a known TTP and paternal fish consumption data (n=785).
Conception delay was defined as more than 12 cycles of unprotected intercourse to achieve pregnancy.
Paternal fish consumption was assessed by three measures : frequency of Lake Ontario sport fish meals in 1991, numbers of years eating fish, and estimated PCB exposure from fish consumption.
Adjusted ORs for number of fish meals, based on logistic regression, ranged from 0.69 to 0.80 ; from 0.61 to. 82 for number of years eating fish ; and from 0.44 to 1.14 for quartiles of estimated PCB exposure from fish consumption.
All confidence intervals included one.
These findings suggest that, based on paternal self-reports, Lake Ontario fish consumption does not increase the risk of conception delay.
