Ecotoxicological effects associated with contaminants present in dredged material from three Spanish ports, Ría of Huelva (SW, Spain), La Coruña (NW, Spain) and Bay of Cádiz (SW, Spain) were determined using a marine biotest based on endocrine disruption effects (vitellogenesis process alteration). Intermoult female Carcinus maenas were exposed in the laboratory to sediments from the Spanish ports per replicate during 21 days. Crab haemolymph samples were taken for vitellogenin/vitellin (VTG… CONTINUE READING
