ROCCH, French Chemical Contaminant Monitoring Network, provides each year a new official dataset to update the assessment of the chemical state of French coastal waters in the national and international context. Measurements of concentrations of trace metal elements and organic compounds  in Mediterranean shellfish tissue are transmitted to the international database of ICES (for the OSPAR Convention) for quality assessment.
