Gilthead were fed three diets. Diet A was the control diet, whereas diets B and C were supplemented with 300 and 900 mg Zn/kg, respectively. Fish fed with diet C, at the end of the experiment, showed the lowest weight. Zinc concentrations presented the higher values in gills, liver, and kidney. Muscle and brain had the lower mean values and showed a tight(More)
At different periods of the year specimens of Mytilus galloprovincialis were exposed to 0.5 microg Cd/ml seawater for 7 days. Concentrations of trace elements (Cd, Zn, Cu and Fe) and Cd-binding proteins in gills, viscera, muscle and mantle were determined after 1 weeks exposure. Cadmium accumulation was higher in May and June and was tissue dependent; it(More)
Four groups of gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) were fed diets with additional metal contents: a basal diet (diet A) contained Zn at 60.9 ± 1.9 mg/kg diet, Cu at 3.9 ± 0.9 mg/kg diet, and Fe at 138.3 ± 6.8 mg/kg diet; the other diets were supplemented with copper (20 mg/kg, diet B), iron (100 mg/kg, diet C), or zinc (300 mg/kg, diet D). Two consecutive(More)
Concentrations of heavy metals (zinc, copper, cadmium, and iron) were measured in several tissues (brain, gizzard, leg-muscle, heart, breast-muscle, intestine, liver and kidney) of moorhens (Gallinula chloropus), black-headed gulls (Larus ridibundus), and coots (Fulica atra) collected between autumn 1985 and spring 1989 in northern Italy.
