Heavy metals contribute to the anthropogenic contamination of marine ecosystems. Some of them are essential to the life processes of organisms; others are toxic, even at low concentrations. They penetrate organisms via food, respiratory pathways or the skin. The extent to which metals penetrate organisms is measured by bioconcentration and bioaccumulation factors and also by their transport between organisms at different trophic levels of an ecosystem. These factors define the course of metal…

Bioaccumulation of Metals in Tissues of Marine Animals, Part II: Metal Concentrations in Animal Tissues

It has been found that carnivorous species bioaccumulate far greater quantities of metals than herbivores or omnivores, and that metal levels are lower in organisms capable of detoxifying or excreting metals.

Impact of Certain Heavy Metals on Histology and Physiology of Fishes: Interpretative Study

Heavy metals, as essential or non-essential ones, are present in aquatic systems at different levels. The over limited concentration of metals has a negative effects as physiological, histological

Trace metal accumulation in decapods and its use in monitoring the marine environment

Coastal habitats are susceptible to severe contamination due to their exposure to both marine and terrestrial inputs, many of which contain toxic heavy metals. Trace metals in the marine environment

Bottom-up contamination in marine systems: model trophic levels to predict cadmium flow in marine organisms

Cadmium is considered one of the most toxic metals to aquatic organisms. This naturally occurring metal is found in the environment in low concentrations due to natural processes, such as volcanic

study ABSTRACT Some heavy metals (HMs) are of biological importance in animal life while others are important trace elements for plant growth and in higher animals. Despite various uses, their

Bioaccumulation, Depuration of Heavy Metals (As, Cd, Pb) and Metabolism of These Metals in Body of Mussels (Maretrix Lyrata) During 20 Days in Artificial Media of Culture

The purpose of this work is to try to estimate for the first five days the extent of As, Pb, Cd bioaccumulation by Meretrix Lyrata mussels in artificial media of culture contaminated by heavy metals

There seems to be a common link between intracellular localisation of Cd in metal-binding proteins and Cd containing vesicles as detoxifying mechanisms in the marine organisms.

Influence of nitrate on metal sorption and bioaccumulation in marine phytoplankton, Dunaliella salina

The difference in ambient nitrate concentration did not affect the order of metal adsorption of Dunaliella salina, but the absolute adsorptive quantities were greatly affected, and the influence of nitrates concentration on metal absorption and adsorptions was different.

The levels of MT-bound metals exhibit a strong relationship with the cytosolic metal concentrations in a metal-exposed natural population of oysters, and the possibility exists that the distribution of this variability may be related to the level of environmental metal contamination.
