Concentrations of cadmium, lead, nickel and vanadium were determined in water, surficial sediments and the muscle of three demersal fish species (Epinephelus coioides, Psettodes erumei and Solea elongate) from 15 sampling sites in the northern part of Persian Gulf. Concentrations of the elements were determined using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer. There were no significant differences among the sampling sites in Cd and Pb levels in the sediments. The highest concentrations of Ni… 

Trace and Major Elements Concentration in Fish and Associated Sediment–Seawater, Northern Shores of the Persian Gulf

Ecological indexes values have revealed a low to moderate elemental pollution of sediment and fish samples in the north part of the Persian Gulf.

Heavy Metals Levels in Sediment and Ray Fish ( Dasyatis bennettii ) from Musa Estuary and Selech Estuary, Persian Gulf

5 Abstract: Heavy metals concentration in sediment and Ray fish, Dasyatis bennettii from four stations in two estuaries in the north Persian Gulf was determined using a flame atomic absorption

Trace metals level in sediments and bivalve Trachycardium lacunosum shell in the Persian Gulf

The current investigation has monitored the concentration of Cd and Pb in bivalve Trachycardium lacunosum shells and the sediment samples in Asaluyeh Bay (north of the Persian Gulf). The samples were

Heavy metal concentrations in the soft tissues of swan mussel (Anodonta cygnea) and surficial sediments from Anzali wetland, Iran

The metal contents in the mussel species from the studied region were comparable to other world areas and in most cases, the levels of the metals either fell within the range for other areas or were lower.

Heavy metal concentration in sediment, benthic, benthopelagic, and pelagic fish species from Musa Estuary (Persian Gulf)

Results showed that there were no significant relationships between metal concentration in fish tissues and sediment, except for Ni concentration in the J. belangerii liver, and the concentrations of studied metals in fish muscle were below the permissible limits proposed by FAO, WHO, and EC.

Heavy metal concentration in sediment, benthic, benthopelagic, and pelagic fish species from Musa Estuary

The concentration of Cd, Co, Cu, Ni, and Pb was measured in sediment and three fish species collected from Musa Estuary, Persian Gulf. The concen- tration order of heavy metals in sediment were Ni >

Distribution of Pb in Sediment and Shell of Rocky Oysters (Saccostrea cucullata) of Lengeh Port, Qeshm and Hormoz Islands in Persian Gulf, Iran

Concentrations of lead (Pb) were found in the shells of the oyster Saccostrea cucullata and sediments in May 2010. Samples were obtained at four sites on Qeshm Island, at three sites on Hormoz

Heavy metals in coastal sediments of South Caspian Sea: natural or anthropogenic source?

This paper focuses on heavy metal distribution patterns in sediments of central Guilan (CG) and east Mazandaran (EM) in the south Caspian Sea coasts, north of Iran. Sediment sub-samples were

Spatial variation of Fe, Mn and Ni concentrations in sediment and water of Musa Estuary, Persian Gulf.

1 2 Abstract: Musa estuary is located in the northwest Persian Gulf. Each one of its branches and creeks is subjected to different anthropogenic activities. The main aim of current study is to



Trace metals concentrations in marine organisms from the coastal areas of Bahrain, Arabian Gulf

A total of 162 fish and shellfish samples representing important species have been collected from different coastal areas of Bahrain in the Arabian Gulf, and analyzed for lead, cadmium, mercury, and

Baseline trace metal concentrations in New South Wales coastal waters

The trace metal concentrations were comparable to those in the surface waters of the Pacific Ocean, indicating that fluvial inputs or processes occurring in the coastal margin were of limited importance in determining traceMetal concentrations.

Concentrations of selected trace elements in fish tissue and streambed sediment in the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille and Spokane River basins, Washington, Idaho, and Montana, 1998

Fish tissue and bed sediment samples were collected from 16 stream sites in the Northern Rockies Intermontane Basins study area in 1998 as part of the U.S. Geological Survey National WaterQuality

Heavy metal inputs to Mississippi Delta sediments

Heavy metal concentrations were determined in suspended particulates, filtered water and sediment collected in the Mississippi River and from its marine delta. More than 90% of the metal load of the

Heavy metal distribution in the Godavari River basin

Suspended and bed sediments collected from the entire region of the Godavari River basin were analyzed for Fe, Mn, Cr, Cu, Ni, and Zn. There are pronounced temporal and spatial variations in the
