Rainbow trout were exposed to 8 h episodes of either Cd (0.1 or 0.2 mg/L) or Cu (0.1 or 0.6 mg/L) at pH 7. Gill, liver, mucus, blood, skin, muscle, and body remainder were examined for metal content during and after exposure. Accumulation of Cd occurred mostly in the gill, liver, mucus, and muscle, with the gill supporting 21-36% of the body burden. Copper appeared primarily in the gill, liver and mucus, with the gill supporting 4-40% of the body burden. After exposure, rapid clearance of… CONTINUE READING
