Muscle, liver, nerve tissue, and gonads of Pacific Blue Marlin were analyzed for total and organic mercury. The ratios of total to organic mercury in the tissues indicate a partial physiological control over the form in which the mercury exists in the marlin. Total to organic ratios in the muscle, gonad, and central nervous tissue are similar. The liver, however, with a ratio of 35:1 reflects an unusually high proportion of inorganic to organic mercury. A possible explanation involves demethylat...

Abstract Black marlin from the apparently unpolluted waters off north-eastern Australia have the highest muscle and liver concentrations of total mercury yet reported for a teleost species. Selenium concentrations are also high. There is a significant correlation between mercury and selenium concentrations, and concentrations of both those elements are significantly correlated to size of fish. Concentrations of cadmium, lead, zinc, copper or arsenic are not so correlated. The results of this stu...

The Gulf War Oil Spill released up to 11 million barrels of oil into the Arabian Gulf during from the period January 20, 1991 through May 1991. Since the spill, scientists from many countries have come to Saudi Arabia to assist with the evaluation of its impact on the Gulf ecosystem. What follows below is little more than a non-critical review of the findings of these scientists. Critical review can only follow years of painstaking research and quantitative analysis so that we may begin to under...

Publisher Summary The enormous variation in size, shape, and specialized structures among fishes enable individual species to survive in almost every marine ecological niche known, regardless of temperature, salinity, or depth. Although the economically important marine groups are few in number—including the tunas, cods, herrings, salmonids, flounders, and their relatives—it is probable that more than 1000 additional species are regularly taken by sport and commercial fishermen for human consump...

Books and symposia proceedings were published that discussed the biological effects of water pollution, ecotoxicity, and aquatic toxicity and hazard assessment. Metal pollution in South America was summarized according to sources, the interrelationships between metals and sediment, concentration of metals ion biota, and metal transport and cycles. The present situation in latin America was summarized with regard to problems associated with its long coastline, lack of basic information, and a sho...

AbstractThe objective of this study was to investigate Pb bioaccumulation in clams (Meretrix meretrix) living in different salinities. Several hundred clams and samples of sediment and seawater were collected from 12 locations on the Saudi coast of the Arabian Gulf. Soft tissue from each clam was removed and digested separately in double distilled concentrated HNO3 acid. Duplicate samples of the sediments were also digested in concentrated HNO3 acid. Lead in the seawater samples was extracted us...

Global atmospheric changes carry the potential to disrupt the normal cycling of mercury and its compounds. Acid rain may increase methylmercury levels in freshwater fish. Global warming and increased ultraviolet radiation may affect the global budget of methylmercury, including its formation and degradation in both biotic and abiotic environments. In this article we review current knowledge on mercury and monomethylmercury with regard to their environmental fate and the potential for human healt...

The usefulness of organisms as biomonitors of environmental quality has been demonstrated repeatedly during episodes of acute poisoning. Management goals now largely seek to avoid or mitigate these occurrences, concomitant with introduction of chemicals to the environment. Biomonitors have largely been adopted as sentinel organisms to warn of excess bioavailability of xenobiotics. Uptake and retention processes in any organisms, however, are only semi-passive, so that metabolic processes may inf...

Measured muscle and whole fish total mercury concentrations showed significant positive correlations with age, weight and length, in order of decreasing correlation. Within herring age classes, however, muscle and whole fish mercury concentrations showed significant negative correlations with weight and length due to a ‘growth dilution’ effect in 1- and 2-year-old herring, but demonstrated positive correlations with weight and length in 3- to 5-year-old fish. A bioenergetics-based pollutant accu...

Abstract The use of the sole Paralichthys sp. as a bioindicator species for mercury, cadmium and zinc pollution in the Bahia Blanca Estuary, Argentina, is investigated. Its distribution, life habits and predatory characteristics are considered. The highest total mercury concentrations were found in muscle, the levels being above internationally accepted standards for human consumption, followed by those in the liver and kidney. The cadmium and zinc concentrations were highest in the liver and ki...

Abstract Total mercury, cadmium, and zinc accumulation was studied in muscle and liver of three species of shark from the Bahia Blanca estuary, Argentina. The mercury concentrations were similar in both muscle (range: 0·77–2·99 μg/g) and liver (0·79–2·26 μg/g) of the analyzed species. Concentrations of cadmium and zinc were higher in liver than in muscle. The frequency distributions of metal concentrations were found to be log-normal. The metal concentrations increased proportionally to the tota...
