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...

Abstract Selenium and mercury were evaluated in tissues and stomachs of the dolphinfish Coryphaena hippurus from two sites in the Southeastern Gulf of California. Hg levels were consistently low and exhibited the following patterns: muscle (0.14 ± 0.01 μg/g wet weight) followed by kidney (0.12 ± 0.02 μg/g), liver (0.11 ± 0.01 μg/g), and gonads (0.04 ± 0.00 μg/g). The maximum of Se was found in the kidney (5.60 ± 0.40 μg/g) and the minimum in muscle (0.60 ± 0.01 μg/g). All the Se:Hg molar ratios ...

ABSTRACTThe mercury (Hg) poisoning of Minamata Bay of Japan widely activated a global attention to Hg toxicity and its potential consequences to the aquatic ecosystem and human health. This has resulted to an increased need for a dynamic assembly, contextualization, and quantification of both the current state-of-the-art and approaches for understanding the cause-and-effect relationships of Hg exposure. Thus, the objective of this present review is to provide both hazardous toxic properties and ...

AbstractExposure to mercury (Hg) results in reproductive abnormalities and deficiencies in female fish. We traced the maternal assimilation and redistribution of dietary inorganic (HgII) and organic (MeHg) forms of Hg in a coastal marine fish, the Spot Leiostomus xanthurus. We conducted a 90-d laboratory experiment in which treatment Spot were fed muscle of Blue Marlin Makaira nigricans with elevated concentrations of Hg mixed with a commercial fish food, while control Spot were fed only commerc...

Abstract Mercury and selenium were assessed in the sailfish, Istiophorus platypterus , from the Eastern Pacific. Sixty-seven individuals were sampled, muscle, liver, kidney, gonads and the prey found in the stomach contents were isolated during fishing 2011–2013 tournaments. Hg exhibited the following pattern (μg g − 1 wet weight): liver (0.57 ± 0.07) > muscle (0.56 ± 0.04) > kidney (0.44 ± 0.08) > gonad (0.14 ± 0.01). The maximum concentration of Se was found in kidneys (14.1 ± 1.9 μg g − 1 ), ...

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...

Abstract Muscle, liver and stomach contents of 64 blue sharks and 52 swordfishes, caught between September 2004 and February 2005 near the Azores (area A) and the Equator (area E), were analysed for mercury and selenium. Levels of mercury were relatively high (blue shark: 0.032–2.5 μg g −1 ; swordfish: 0.031–9.8 μg g −1 ) and comparable to values reported in the literature. However, mercury and organic mercury concentrations in muscle and liver of specimens from E were significantly higher than ...

The gonads of 11 adult female blue marlin ( Makaira nigricans Lacepede, 1803) caught mostly in July in Bermuda waters (2002–2005), and ranging in weight from 242–465 kg, were evaluated histologically for reproductive status. The gonadoso matic index (Si) of these specimens ranged from 0.70%–6.22%; specimens with a gSi ≥ 3 were reproductively active. Based on gonad histology, 70% of the females caught in July were actively spawning or in spawning condition, with post-ovulatory follicles (POFs) or...

Florida’s commercial and recreational shark landings represent a significant portion of the total U.S. Atlantic shark landings (NMFS, 1993). Shark landings have increased significantly during the past decade because human consumption of shark meat has become increasingly acceptable and because, in Asian markets, the demand for shark fins is very high— as are the prices paid for them (NMFS, 1993; Brown, in press). The east-central coast of Florida is an important area for commercial and recreatio...

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...

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...
