We used a battery of biomarkers in fish to study the effects of the extensive dredging in Göteborg harbor situated at the river Göta alv estuary, Sweden. Eelpout (Zoarces viviparus) were sampled along a gradient into Göteborg harbor, both before and during the dredging. Biomarker responses in the eelpout before the dredging already indicated that fish in Göteborg harbor are chronically affected by pollutants under normal conditions compared to those in a reference area. However, the results… CONTINUE READING
