This is the first study to use a multiple biomarker approach on the green-lipped mussel, Perna canaliculus to test its feasibility as a bioindicator of coastal metal contamination in New Zealand (NZ). Mussels were collected from six low intertidal sites varying in terms of anthropogenic impacts, within two regions (West Coast and Nelson) of the South Island of NZ. Trace elements, including arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), lead (Pb), nickel (Ni), and zinc (Zn), were measured in the gills… Expand
Biomarker responses of mussels exposed to earthquake disturbances
TLDR
Physiological biomarkers were negatively affected by earthquake disturbances and mussels from the Port of Lyttelton had higher negative scope for growth post-earthquake, demonstrating that physiological and other biomarkers are effective at detecting the effects of multiple stressors following seismic disturbances. Expand
Trace metals and macroelements in mussels from Chinese coastal waters: National spatial patterns and normalization.
TLDR
Nonlinear optimization of different elements was necessary in assessing metal bioaccumulation patterns in marine mussels at a large spatial scale and Trace elements accumulation in the mussel tissues was significantly related to both macroelements and body dry weight. Expand
Trace metals and oxidative status in soft tissues of caged mussels (Aulacomya atra) on the North Patagonian coastline.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that A. atra selectively accumulates metals from the water column and their prooxidant effects depend on the tissue antioxidant defenses and the exposure time. Expand
Biomarker responses in oysters Crassostrea hongkongensis in relation to metal contamination patterns in the Pearl River Estuary, southern China.
TLDR
Among the metals measured in the oyster tissues, Ag, Cd, Cu, Ni and Zn showed the strongest associations with pro-oxidant and oxidative stress responses and detoxification responses (glutathione and metallothionein), suggesting that the present metal contamination still exerts significant amount of stress in biota in the PRE. Expand
Physiological and cellular responses of oysters (Crassostrea hongkongensis) in a multimetal-contaminated estuary.
TLDR
Measurements indicate that multimetal contamination in the Pearl River estuary impacts the physiological and cytological performance of oysters. Expand
Biomonitoring of Trace Metals in the Coastal Waters Using Bivalve Molluscs
Several environmental contaminants including toxic trace metals are being discharged into the coastal environment causing serious threat to marine organisms and posing public health risk. MarineExpand
Arsenic in shellfish: A systematic review of its dynamics and potential health risks.
TLDR
The key abiotic factor influencing the presence of arsenic in shellfish is anthropogenic contamination, followed by geographic location, and the crucial biotic factor is the genetics of each species of shellfish. Expand
Time changes in biomarker responses in two species of oyster transplanted into a metal contaminated estuary.
TLDR
The complexity of biomarkers responses under field condition is demonstrated, therefore the time changes of biomarker responses to metals need to be considered in evaluating the biological impacts of metal pollution on estuarine organisms. Expand
Regional assessment of trace element concentrations in arrow squids (Nototodarus gouldi, N. sloanii) from New Zealand waters: Bioaccessibility and impact on food web and human consumers.
TLDR
In-vitro digestion had no observable effect upon Cd concentrations in arrow squid mantle tissue, implying that the measured concentrations are bioaccessible to humans, and revealed that Cd had the highest potential impact on marine food webs and human health. Expand
Contaminants bioaccumulation and pathological assessment in Mytilus galloprovincialis in coastal waters facing the brownfield site of Bagnoli, Italy.
TLDR
An appropriate localization of farming to avoid contamination from sediment turbulence and risks for consumer health is needed. Expand

An Evaluation of Bivalves as Biomonitors of Heavy Metals Pollution in Marine Waters
TLDR
This paper will provide a general review of studies that have employed bivalved shellfish as sentinel bioindicators in marine environments impacted by heavy metals, and give suggestions for conducting biomonitoring assays. Expand
Toxicity of Metals to the Bivalve Tellina deltoidalis and Relationships Between Metal Bioaccumulation and Metal Partitioning Between Seawater and Marine Sediments
TLDR
In the Cu-spiked sediment and water exposures, the survival was negatively correlated with the Cu concentration in both the overlying water and in the tissues of T. deltoidalis, and particulate Cu concentrations were found to be a poor predictor of Cu bioaccumulation and toxicity for Cu- Spiked sediments.

TLDR
Assessment of the quality of coastal waters of Ushuaia Bay by measuring catalase activity, lipid peroxidation, total lipid content, bioaccumulation of heavy metals and condition index in transplanted mussel Mytilus edulis chilensis showed significant differences among exposure times as well as among tissues.

A large scale survey of trace metal levels in coastal waters of the Western Mediterranean basin using caged mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis).
TLDR
Overall, the use of active biomonitoring (ABM) approach allowed to investigate trace metal contamination in order to support policy makers in establishing regional strategies (particularly, with regard to the European Marine Strategy Directive). Expand
Effects of environmental and physiological variables on the accumulated concentrations of trace metals in the New Zealand cockle Austrovenus stutchburyi.
TLDR
There was no consistent pattern between the estuarine systems, probably reflecting unidentified contaminant inputs, and tissue concentrations decreased significantly for some elements, indicating high concentrations of these metals in the gut contents after depuration. Expand
Arsenic speciation in blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) along a highly contaminated arsenic gradient.
TLDR
A strong positive correlation was observed between the concentration of inorganic arsenic species (arsenic compounds with no As-C bonds) and total arsenic concentrations present in M. edulis tissues, which could result in significant toxicological consequences to the mussels and higher trophic consumers.

Bioaccumulation and biomarker responses of trace metals and micro-organic pollutants in mussels and fish from the Lagoon of Venice, Italy.
TLDR
Levels and effects of trace metals, PAHs and PCBs in mussels and fish native to the Lagoon of Venice and the results of the survival-in-air test were quite erratic, showing that they were associated with the high variability of both natural and physiological parameters temperature, food, reproduction, and body reserve cycle.

Biochemical biomarker responses of green-lipped mussel, Perna canaliculus, to acute and subchronic waterborne cadmium toxicity.
TLDR
This study shows that biochemical changes in Cd-exposed green-lipped mussels can be linked to tissue metal accumulation and are consistent with previously reported physiological effects, and suggests that green-led mussels are amenable to a multiple biomarker approach and may be of use as a bioindicator species for monitoring coastal metal pollution.

The accumulation of Zn, Cd and Cu in the digestive gland of the oyster Crassostrea rhizophorae is demonstrated in response to the contamination of sediments and the potential use of this specific organ in monitoring metal contamination in tropical areas is discussed. Expand

The data indicate that the sewage outfall is the most likely input source of Ag, Cu, Pb, and Zn in this region, and that marine communities up to 3 km east and up to 750 m northwest of the outfall are periodically exposed to the effluent. Expand
