Accumulation of butyltin compounds in cobia Rachycentron canadum raised in offshore aquaculture sites.


Butyltin residues (monobutyltin, MBT; dibutyltin, DBT; tributyltin, TBT; tetrabutyltin, TeBT) in the sea water and in the cobia (Rachycentron canadum) from aquaculture sites located offshore of Penhu island, Taiwan, were collected and quantified. The average concentrations of MBT, DBT, TBT and TeBT in sea water were n.d.-28+/-3, 4.0+/-0.6-88+/-13, n.d.-43… (More)
