The present study aimed at analyzing the imposex incidence and the presence of butyltins namely tributyltin (TBT) with its di- and mono-substituted metabolites in Bolinus brandaris whole tissues and in surface sediments at seven sites from the Tunisian coast during one campaign in May 2010. Butyltin levels were evaluated using isotope dilution GC–MS. Except the population collected from Zarat site, imposex was found in snails from the remained six sites with a maximal incidence and sterility… CONTINUE READING
