Trace metals in scallops from within and around 2 ocean disposal sites


, : Trace metals in scallops from within and around 2 ocean disposal sites. Marine Pollution Bulletin 8(10): 224-228

The areal distributions of the concentrations of 13 metals in sea scallop Placopecten magellanicus tissues were examined in the vicinity of 2 ocean disposal sites located off the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast. Patterns of metals distribution show that: Five specific metals may be used as identification tags for individual waste disposed at the 2 sites, and disposed materials tend to be transported by currents south and southwest from the disposal sites, and biological availability and potential toxicity of metals pose a threat to marine biota.
