This study describes the spatial and the seasonal variation of flux and concentration of 11 metals (Al, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn), organic matter and C and N in settling particulate matter collected with sediment traps during seven interconnective, continuous periods totalling 15 months. Ten sediment traps were placed out along the(More)
Contents of Cd and Zn in the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis, collected on the coast of the southern Bothnian Sea and the northern Baltic proper, were determined using flame AAS. The observed concentrations ranged from 4.7 to 10.8 mg kg(-1) dw for Cd and from 121 to 215 mg kg(-1) dw for Zn. The Zn/Cd ratio was around 20 at a majority of the investigated(More)

In 2013 the OECD Test Guideline (TG 236) for Fish Embryo Acute Toxicity (FET) was adopted. It determines the acute toxicity of chemicals on embryonic fish. Previous studies show a good correlation of FET with the standard acute fish toxicity (AFT) - however, the potential of FET test to predict AFT, which is required by the REACH Regulation (EC 1907/2006)(More)
