Documenting utility of paddlefish otoliths for quantification of metals using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry.

Abstract

RATIONALE The otoliths of the inner ear of fishes record the environment of their surrounding water throughout their life. For paddlefish (Polyodon spathula), otoliths have not been routinely used by scientists since their detriments were outlined in the early 1940s. We sought to determine if paddlefish otoliths were useful for resolving elemental… (More)
