Contaminant bioavailability via digestive exposure was examined for 18 species of marine benthic invertebrates, using incubation of digestive fluids with sediments that were spiked with either radiolabeled benzo-[a]-pyrene (BaP) or zinc. Interphyletic trends in contaminant solubilization were compared with measures of digestive biochemistry, including enzyme activities, surfactancy, pH, and fluid phase organic carbon, amino acids, and lipids. Contaminant solubilization ranged from values equal… CONTINUE READING
