Natural organic matter (NOM) in aquatic environments reduces metal toxicity to fish by forming metal-NOM complexes, which reduce metal bioavailability, metal-gill binding and toxicity. However, differences in the chemical composition of different types of NOM (quality) could also affect metal-NOM binding and toxicity. We predicted that Cu-gill binding would vary in trout exposed to Cu in the presence of NOM of different qualities. NOM was collected from three sources: Luther Marsh (terrigenous… CONTINUE READING
