Three fish species from aquaculture cages located along the coast of Tenerife island (Canary Islands, Spain) were analyzed: gilthead bream (Sparus aurata), sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax), and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry was used to determine total mercury in 120 fish muscle samples. 0.037±0.04 mg/kg, 0.082±0.15 mg/kg, and 0.023±0.025 mg/kg wet weight of Hg were found for sea bass, gilthead bream, and rainbow trout, respectively. Due to these… Expand
