Accumulation of tributyltin (TBT) in serum, liver, muscle, and gill of olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) was examined in a 30-d static-renewal exposure. Tributyltin accumulated rapidly in the serum of the olive flounder and to a greater extent than in the other tissues. The accumulated TBT concentrations in tissues were in the order of serum > gill > liver > muscle on a dry-weight basis. Tributyltin also was detected in the serum of feral fine-spotted flounder, Pleuronichthys cornutus… CONTINUE READING
