Concentrations of Cd, Co, Cu, Ni, Pb, Fe and Zn were determined in the muscle, liver and gills of three commercial benthic and pelagic fish species (Johnius belangerii, Euryglossa orientalis and Cynoglossus arel) from three estuaries in the northwest Persian Gulf. Metals levels varied significantly depending on the tissues, species and locations. Generally,(More)
The biomagnification of mercury and PCB153 was studied in experimental aquatic food chains involving three species of phytoplankton, one species of zooplankton and one species of fish. The phytoplankton species Ceratium furca, Ceratium tripos and Chaetoceros brevis were exposed to 0, 0.2, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 mg/l of Hg and 0, 0.5 and 2.0 mg/kg of PCB 153.(More)
Persian Gulf supports diverse ecosystems and biota in need of remediation and protection and metal data from this region is needed. The levels of mercury in tissues of blue swimming crab, Portunus pelagicus and sediments from the Persian Gulf coasts, south Iran were investigated. Mercury analysis was performed by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. The(More)
Persian Gulf supports diverse ecosystems and biota in need of remediation and protection and metal data from this region is needed. The levels of heavy metals (Fe, Hg, Ni and Pb) in tissues (hepatopancreas, muscle and exoskeleton) of blue swimming crab, Portunus pelagicus and sediments in the Persian Gulf coasts, south Iran were investigated. Heavy metals(More)

The frequency and distribution of barnacle (Chelonibia patula) on blue swimmer crab Portunus pelagicus off Persian Gulf Coasts were studied. A total of 545 crabs were examined and were of the same size range. The carapace width rangof crab werefrom 6.5cm to 16.5cm, carapace length from 4 to 8cm and weighed 80.5g to 220.4g. The barnacles were attached to the(More)

In the current study the concentrations of oil-related PAHs (naphthalene (NAP), acenaphthylene (ACY), anthracene (ANT), chrysene (CHY) and benzo(b)fluoranthene (BbF)) were determined in the sediment and fish (Euryglossa orientalis) of three stations, Khozestan, Boshehr and Bandarabas, in the north Persian Gulf. The results indicated that CHY and BbF(More)
