Abstract This study aims to evaluate the expression of biomarkers of oxidative stress (LPO, GPx, AtCh, SOD) in mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis) following the exposure to suspensions of microparticles irregular shaped fibres of Polyethylene terephthalate of different sizes (small 5–60 μm, S-PET; medium 61–499 μm, M-PET; large 500–3000 μm, L-PET) at a single dose of 0.1 g/L. Mussels were tested under two different starting pH conditions of marine water: standard (8.0) and acidified (7.5). The r...

Abstract Long-term monitoring is essential for revealing pollution trends, but relevant studies in the Antarctic remain limited. In this study, a seven-year continuous monitoring of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the atmosphere and soil was carried out at the Fildes Peninsula, Antarctica. Average concentrations of Σ15PAHs were 7134.491 pg/m3 and 61.093 ng/g in air and soil, respectively. A declining trend was observed for Σ15PAHs in air during the 2013–2019 summer, but this was not f...
Abstract Musa estuary and its tributaries, located northwest of the Persian Gulf, host many industrial complexes, high-density ports, and urban areas along their coastal regions and are, therefore, constantly threatened by chemical contamination. The present study is the first to have investigated the surface sediments in six stations of the Musa estuary tributaries. The mean variations in BPA concentrations in the dry sediments of these stations ranged from 2.22 to 16.71 ng/g. Fairly high level...

Abstract Uptake of microplastic (MP) particles has been detected in a large number of marine organisms, and humans may consequently be exposed to high MP levels in consumed seafood. Yet there remains a dearth of knowledge regarding uptake into commercially important finfish and tissues (fillets) most commonly consumed by humans. The current study detected translocation of MP into the fillet of European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) juveniles fed with a diet containing fluorescent MP particles (...

Abstract Marine particle-attached (PA) and free-living (FL) microbes play important roles in the biogeochemical cycling of organic matter along the water column. Deep-sea cold seeps are highly productive and chemosynthetic ecosystems, their continuous emission of CH4, CO2, and H2S can reach up to 100 m in the above water, therefore would influence the distribution and potential metabolic functions of deep-sea prokaryotes. In this study, the vertical distribution profiles of both PA and FL microb...

Abstract The aim of present study was to evaluate temporal changes in the distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the estuary of the Itapicuru (Brazil). A sediment core was sampled in the study area. Concentrations of the 16 priority PAHs were analyzed using gas chromatography coupled to a mass spectrometry. A gas flow proportional counter was used to estimate the sedimentation rate through the determination of 210Pb. Granulometric fractions and total organic carbon (TOC) conc...

Abstract The risk to Arctic aquatic species due to accidental oil spills is not well studied. One of the key reasons for this limitation is the lack of understanding of the dose-response relations for the species in the Arctic region. The present study addresses this knowledge gap. It proposes a new approach to develop dose-response curves for Arctic aquatic species. The application of the approach is demonstrated using the estimation of mortality risk in Boreogadus saida (polar cod) due to expo...

Abstract Bio-accumulation of high levels of persistent organic pollutants represent a serious conservation concern for Mediterranean marine odontocetes. In this study, blubber samples from 10 striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) stranded along the Italian coasts during 2015–2016 were analyzed. All specimens showed dl-PCBs > PBDEs ≫ PCDD/Fs. Median concentrations were 1820 ng/g l.w., 456 ng/g l.w. and 23.9 pg/g l.w., respectively. dl-PCBs accounted for 93.3% of total TEQs. PBDE concentrations...

Abstract Rivers potentially conduct important components as result of anthropogenic stressors for coral reefs. Molecular techniques are increasingly being used for monitoring biological and chemical monitoring of rivers and reefs. Here, we use PhyloChips™ to process surface water samples collected along two rivers and associated reefs in an environmental protection area in northeastern Brazil. Our results indicate that a significant part of Operational Taxonomic Units (OTUs) identified were able...

Abstract Coral species display varying susceptibilities to biotic or abiotic stress. To address the causes underlying this phenomenon, we profiled the Symbiodiniaceae clade type, bacterial communities and coral transcriptome responses in Pavona decussata and Acropora pruinosa, two species displaying different environmental tolerances in the Weizhou Island. We found that C1 was the most dominant Symbiodiniaceae subclade, with no difference detected between A. pruinosa and P. decussata. Neverthele...
