Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) is currently the most widely-used brominated flame retardant (BFR) and has been proven to have a very high toxicity to aquatic organisms including bivalves. In this study, a laboratory experiment was conducted to obtain a better understanding of the role of algae food on the bioaccumulation of TBBPA and its effects on the suspension-feeding bivalve, the scallop, Chlamys farreri. Scallops were exposed to TBBPA via algae food alone or food+water for 10 days. Results… CONTINUE READING
