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…

Assessment of element concentrations in widely consumed cultured fish in Turkey Türkiye'de yaygin olarak tüketilen kültür baliklarinda element konsantrasyonlarinin değerlendirilmesi

Principal Component Analysis reveals that elements can be grouped under three components in cultured marine fish muscle tissue and there were no risk for humans to consume these farm fishes.

Age-dependent heavy metal content in muscle tissue of brown bullhead (Ictalurus nebulosus, Le Suerur, 1819)

We used brown bullheads (Ictalurus nebulosus) from Milicz Ponds in our study. The authors examined the impacts of age, body length, body weight, and the condition of the fish on concentrations of



Total and methylmercury residues in cartilaginous fish from Mediterranean Sea.

Total and methylmercury residues in tuna-fish from the Mediterranean sea

The estimated weekly intake was far above the established Provisional Tolerable Weekly Intake for both species, and mercury was present almost completely in the methylated form in albacore and bluefin-tuna.

Bioconcentration and Biomagnification of Mercury and Methylmercury in North Sea and Scheldt Estuary Fish

Taking fish length into account, a statistically significant difference in contamination level was observed for species sampled from the different geographical zones, and for each of the Belgian coastal zone four species, a weak positive correlation between Hg content and fish length was found.

Mercury Organotropism in Feral European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)

Hg speciation showed that liver presented higher concentrations than muscle for both organic and inorganic forms, and liver seemed to exert a protective action in relation to Hg accumulation in the other tissues and organs.

Total Mercury and Methyl Mercury Concentrations in Fish from the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea

The observed concentrations of mercury are comparable to those found in other areas of the Persian Gulf as well as in other marine environments and are much lower then the WHO guideline of 0.5 mg kg−1 w.w.

Survey of total mercury in some edible fish and shellfish species collected in Canada in 2002

Dietary intake estimations found that provided fresh and frozen tuna, marlin, swordfish or shark are consumed once a month or less, the dietary intakes of total mercury by women of child-bearing age would fall below the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives provisional tolerable weekly intake for total mercury.
