Two species of bivalves, Mya arenaria and Mactromeris polynima, were exposed to contaminated marine sediments from Baie des Anglais, Quebec, for a period of 10 and 12 weeks, respectively, in order to determine if there was an effect on the phagocytic activity of hemocytes from each species. These sediments contain elevated levels of both PAHs and PCBs. Uncontaminated beach sand was used as control sediments. After a period of 4 weeks, each species of bivalves were sampled and hemocyte… CONTINUE READING
