Determination of heavy metal concentrations in biota of Bahia Blanca, Argentina

, : Determination of heavy metal concentrations in biota of Bahia Blanca, Argentina. Science of the Total Environment, 752-3: 181-190

Total mercury, cadmium and zinc in the muscles of 19 species of marine organisms (fish and crustaceans) from the Bahia Blanca Estuary, Argentina, were determined for the period 1985–1986. In the lower organisms, total mercury values were not higher than international standards for human consumption, but the levels in the top predators exceeded these standards. Cadmium concentrations were very low at all trophic levels. The zinc contents were the standards accepted as suitable for human consumption.
