This work was an attempt to investigate cadmium bioaccumulation in the carp (Cyprinus carpio) during simulated pollution. The fish, weighing 100 g, were kept for 140 days in a 1000-liter indoor concrete tank supplied with a continuous flow (8 liters min-1) of unchlorinated, aerated, and filtered well water, the cadmium concentration of which was maintained at 450 microg liter-1. Such a high cadmium concentration was chosen to achieve metal saturation of the fish organs. Carp were fed during… CONTINUE READING
