Concentrations of heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb and As) were measured in water, sediment and two fish species, Sparus aurata and Solea senegalensis, from the estuary of Tinto and Odiel rivers in Huelva (Spain), one of the most metallic polluted estuaries in Europe. As a forward step to understand metal bioavailability and assess the potential impact on aquatic biota, a study of heavy metal speciation of sediments and water were achieved. High levels of total and dissolved Zn and Cu were found in… CONTINUE READING
