Copper is an important ionoregulatory toxicant in freshwater, but its effects in marine and brackish water systems are less well characterised. The effect of salinity on short-term copper accumulation and sublethal toxicity in two estuarine animals was investigated. The osmoregulating crab Hemigrapsus crenulatus accumulated copper in a concentration-dependent, but salinity-independent manner. Branchial copper accumulation correlated positively with branchial sodium accumulation. Sublethal… Expand
Effects of salinity on short-term waterborne zinc uptake, accumulation and sub-lethal toxicity in the green shore crab (Carcinus maenas).
TLDR
The findings indicate that acute exposure to waterborne Zn leads to the disruption of Zn and Ca homeostasis in green crab, and these effects are exacerbated at the lower salinity. Expand
ffects of salinity on short-term waterborne zinc uptake , ccumulation and sub-lethal toxicity in the green shore crab ( Carcinus aenas )
Waterborne zinc (Zn) is known to cause toxicity to freshwater animals primarily by disrupting calcium (Ca) homeostasis during acute exposure, but its effects in marine and estuarine animals are notExpand
Making sense of nickel accumulation and sub-lethal toxic effects in saline waters: Fate and effects of nickel in the green crab, Carcinus maenas.
TLDR
The data suggest that Ni impacts ionoregulatory function in the green crab, in a gill- and salinity-dependent manner, though all varied with salinity in the expected fashion. Expand
Revealing the complex effects of salinity on copper toxicity in an estuarine clam Potamocorbula laevis with a toxicokinetic-toxicodynamic model.
TLDR
A toxicokinetic-toxicodynamic (TK-TD) model was used to separate and quantify the dual effects of salinity on copper (Cu) toxicity in a euryhaline clam Potamocorbula laevis, finding that Cu toxicity increased with salinity. Expand
Salinity and dissolved organic carbon both affect copper toxicity in mussel larvae: Copper speciation or competition cannot explain everything.
TLDR
The Cu body burden is a more constant predictor of Cu toxicity, regardless of the water chemistry influencing Cu speciating or competition and possible physiological alterations or changes in Cu speciation or competition. Expand
Copper-induced metabolic variation of oysters overwhelmed by salinity effects.
TLDR
Salinity played a dominant role in affecting the metabolites of oysters when combined with Cu exposure, and this study indicated that salinity should be taken into consideration in order to predict the Cu toxicity in estuarine organisms. Expand
Effects of Salinity on the Response of the Wetland Halophyte Kosteletzkya virginica (L.) Presl. to Copper Toxicity
TLDR
It is concluded that K. virginica exhibits a high bioconcentration factor for Cu which could be, at least partly, responsible for its sensitivity to this toxic element. Expand
Salinity-dependent mechanisms of copper toxicity in the galaxiid fish, Galaxias maculatus.
TLDR
Salinity was protective against Cu toxicity, and physiology seemed to play a more important role than water chemistry in this protection, and current regulatory tools and limits are likely protective of this species in New Zealand waters. Expand
Modelling copper toxicokinetics in the zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, under chronic exposures at various pH and sodium concentrations.
TLDR
With kinetic parameters calibrated at environmentally relevant conditions, in terms of pH and Na+ concentrations, the model performed well in predicting Cu accumulation based on independent data sets, and demonstrates potential application of kinetic models that are calibrated in environmentally relevant freshwater conditions. Expand
The combined effect of dissolved organic carbon and salinity on the bioaccumulation of copper in marine mussel larvae.
TLDR
The results indicate decreasing Cu accumulation with increasing DOC concentrations which can be explained by an increase in Cu complexation, and salinity had a nonlinear effect on Cu. Expand

Effects of sublethal and lethal copper levels on hemolymph acid-base balance and ion concentrations in the shore crab Carcinus maenas kept in undiluted sea water
TLDR
A steep increase in the hemolymph calcium concentration before death suggests buffering of the acidosis by calcium-carbonate stores from the exoskeleton. Expand
Effects of prolonged copper exposure in the marine gulf toadfish (Opsanus beta). I. Hydromineral balance and plasma nitrogenous waste products.
TLDR
Evidence is found that the intestine may also exhibit a compensatory response to impairment of branchial transport processes, suggesting at least two target organs (gill and intestine) for copper toxicity in marine fish. Expand
Effects of prolonged copper exposure in the marine gulf toadfish (Opsanus beta) II: copper accumulation, drinking rate and Na+/K+ -ATPase activity in osmoregulatory tissues.
TLDR
Calculations of inorganic copper speciation suggest that Cu(CO3)(2)2- complexes which dominate in seawater and intestinal fluids are of limited availability for uptake while the low levels of ionic Cu2+, CuOH+ and CuCO3 may be the forms taken up by the gill and the intestinal epithelium. Expand
Physicochemistry or physiology: cadmium uptake and effects of salinity and osmolality in three crabs of different ecologies
TLDR
This study tests predictions derived from the interpretations of the authors from a study of Zn uptake by the same crabs, in terms of the balance between physicochemical and counteractive physiological effects controlling trace metal uptake rates from solution. Expand
The influence of salinity on metal uptake and effects in the midge Chironomus maddeni.
TLDR
The observed patterns of bioaccumulation were not entirely explained by the modelled free ion activities of the metals, indicating that factors such as osmotic stress, consumption of metal-contaminated sediments or metal interactions may have been important as well. Expand
Effects of changes in salinity and osmolality on the rate of uptake of zinc by three crabs of different ecologies
TLDR
Results can be partly explained by reported changes in apparent water permeability made by the crabs to low salinity, although experiments manipulating solution osmotic pressures independently of salinity (and therefore chloride concentrations) indicate that other physiological responses may also be coming into effect. Expand
Interactive effects of ambient copper and anoxic, temperature and salinity stress on survival and hemolymph and muscle tissue osmotic effectors in Mytilus edulis
TLDR
Temperature rise increases mortality through accelerated depletion of metabolic reserves in Mytilus edulis and in the adductor muscle, inorganic components are implicated in isosmotic intracellular regulation following salinity change. Expand
Physiology is pivotal for interactions between salinity and acute copper toxicity to fish and invertebrates.
TLDR
Examination of the existing literature on acute Cu toxicity in SW confirmed that early life stages generally are most sensitive but this pattern may be attributable to size rather than developmental stage, Regardless of developmental stage and phylogeny, size clearly matters for Cu sensitivity. Expand
Copper toxicity across salinities from freshwater to seawater in the euryhaline fish Fundulus heteroclitus: is copper an ionoregulatory toxicant in high salinities?
TLDR
It is proposed that physiology rather than chemistry explain much of the variation in Cu toxicity seen across salinities. Expand
Acid-base status, haemolymph composition and tissue copper accumulation in the shore crab Carcinus maenas exposed to combined copper and salinity stress
TLDR
The effects of copper on acid-base status overrode the effects of salinity change, and crabs in poor condition and close to death exhibited low haemolymph pH values, suggesting that haemologicalmph pH may be a useful biomarker of physiological status. Expand
