Trace metal concentrations in phytoplankton were determined in seven locations (Stations I-VII) of the Kuwait Coast, known for significant industrial and recreational activities. Trace metal concentrations in phytoplankton (20-200 microns size) occurred in the sequence of Zn > Pb > Cu > Ni at Stations I-III and VII, and Zn > Cu > Ni > Pb at Stations IV-VI. Station III showed higher concentrations of all the analyzed metals than at other stations. Toxicity tests to phytoplankton revealed a… CONTINUE READING
