This study provides strong evidence for biotic accumulation of two metals in a contaminated watershed and diminution of both metals from lower trophic levels to fish. Bioaccumulation of As and Pb in water and four food web components (particulates, two size fractions of zooplankton, and six species of fish) were measured on three dates in Upper Mystic Lake (UML), MA, which is located in the As-contaminated Aberjona Watershed. Arsenic and Pb levels in small and large plankton and fish… CONTINUE READING
