Role of dissolved and particulate cadmium in the accumulation of cadmium in cultured oysters (Crassostrea gigas).
Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas) collected on the coast of British Columbia, Canada have occasionally shown cadmium (Cd) concentrations at or above 2 microg g(-1) (wet weight), which has resultedExpand

Largest baleen whale mass mortality during strong El Niño event is likely related to harmful toxic algal bloom
While large mass mortality events (MMEs) are well known for toothed whales, they have been rare in baleen whales due to their less gregarious behavior. Although in most cases the cause of mortalityExpand

Effects of the environment and culture depth on growth and mortality in juvenile Pacific oysters in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia
The effects of environmental variables, culture depth, and phytoplankton abundance and composition on juvenile Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas growth and mortality were studied be - tween June andExpand

Formation of a Volunteer Harmful Algal Bloom Network in British Columbia, Canada, Following an Outbreak of Diarrhetic Shellfish Poisoning
Evidence for shellfish toxin illness in British Columbia (BC) on the west coast of Canada can be traced back to 1793. For over two hundred years, domestically acquired bivalve shellfish toxinExpand

The role of phytoplankton in the modulation of dissolved and oyster cadmium concentrations in Deep Bay, British Columbia, Canada.
We previously identified dissolved cadmium (Cd(diss)) as the main source of this metal in cultured Pacific oysters, Crassostrea gigas, in Deep Bay, British Columbia, Canada (Lekhi et al., 2008).Expand
