The unusual metal status of the dugong Dugon dugon
Using atomic absorption spectroscopy, exceptionally high concentrations of iron and zinc were detected in the livers of Dugong dugon (Müller) from north Queensland compared with reported values for other marine mammals from other areas of the world.

Environmental Effects on Toxicity of Heavy Metals to Two Species of Tropical Marine Fish from Northern Australia
Both adult and juvenile glass perch exhibited similar tolerances towards mercury, copper and lead although juveniles seemed marginally moresensitive to zinc and considerably more sensitive to cadmium and nickel.

The Influence of Temperature and Salinity Upon the Acute Toxicity of Heavy Metals to the Banana Prawn (Penaeus merguiensis de Man)
Abstract Bioassays were conducted to determine the effects of temperature and salinity on the acute toxicity of mercury, copper, cadmium, zinc, nickel and lead to juvenile banana prawns (Penaeus…

The genital products of Saccoglossus horsti are discharged within the burrows and expelled after the tide has ebbed. They are not retained in the burrows for any length of time. Fertilization occurs…
Influence of temperature and salinity on the uptake, distribution and depuration of mercury, cadmium and lead by the black-lip oyster Saccostrea echinata
Accumulation rates of cadmium and lead in the majority of tissues examined were significantly greater in lowsalinity water at both temperatures, and lead was lost the most rapidly from oyster tissues, followed by mercury and then Cadmium.
