Results are presented from an experiment designed to investigate the deposition of Al species onto fish gills following the mixing of limed and acidic natural waters. The natural waters were labelled with 26Al and the distribution between high and low molecular weight forms was determined by ultrafiltration of water samples. In labelled acidic waters, the 26Al was present predominantly in low molecular weight forms, whereas in labelled limed waters the major fraction of 26Al was present in a… CONTINUE READING
