Bioaccumulation of Cu, Se and Hg in Fish Tissues of the Sudbury Area Lakes by Shan ZHOU Submitted to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in Partial FuELment of the Requirement for the Degree of Master of Science in Chemistry Lamentian University Sudbury, Ontario May, @ copyright by Shan ZHOU Despite the potential for increased local anthropogenic Hg inputs with anthropogenic disturbance, there is a surprising negative relationship between developed area or human population density in the watershed and MeHg concentrations in fish in multiple studies in streams and lakes (correlation with percent developed area in the salmon case Cited by: The recent documentation of high levels of mercury in fish from northeastern Massachusetts freshwater lakes and ponds calls attention to the need for additional study of mercury bioaccumulation in these environments (Rose et al.,MA DEP, ).

Nevertheless, in some Sudbury lakes, Hg levels high enough to affect loon productivity adversely have been found in fish of a size range preferred as prey by adult loons and/or chicks (Scheuhammer.

Mercury – Methyl-mercury. Bio accumulation of a Contaminant in Fish, as we all known and learned, Mercury (Hg) is well known as an environmental pollutant for very long and it is the very highly toxic element that is found both naturally and man-made or industries pollutant in the environment.

The pollutant has serious effects on human health and as well as ecological system health. Bioaccumulation of Mercury in Fish Species from Different Tropic Level the fatty tissues of fish and biomagnified from one trophic level to the higher trophic levels. Consumption of contaminated fishes with mercury can have adverse effects on human health.

There is no report on the assessment of Hg in fresh water fish from Bangladesh. The ability of selenium (Se) to moderate mercury (Hg) toxicity is well established in the literature. Mercury exposures that might otherwise produce toxic effects are counteracted by Se, particularly when Se:Hg molar ratios approach or exceed 1.

We analyzed whole body Se and Hg concentrations in fish representing 40 species from sites across 12 western U.S. states. The fish samples. Table 1, Table 2 show the Hg concentrations recorded in fish collected from different marine and freshwater environments of China during the past 10 years.

Data are all presented in wet weight (ww) units, and part of the data are calculated from dry weight (dw) data by using a dry weight to wet weight conversion factor of 4 (assuming 75% water content in the soft tissues). The determination of Cu, Se and Hg in fish tissues from Ramsey Lake (Sudbury, Canada) indicated that Cu and Se were more efficiently accumulated in liver whereas Hg had more affinity for muscle.

Mercury (Hg) concentrations in the tissues (muscle, stomach, liver, gills, skin, and gonads) of five fish species (mullet Liza ha em atocheil us, flathead fish Platycephalus indicus, sea bass Lateolabrax japonic u s, mackerel Scomberomorus niphonius and silver pomfret Pampus argenteus) collected from Laizhou Bay in the Bohai Sea of China were investigated.

Bioaccumulation of Contaminants in Fish Tissues INTRODUCTION The bioaccumulation of contaminants in fishes from San Diego Bay is of great public concern since the Bay is a popular fishing location for many people, despite the prevalence of various types of. Bioaccumulation therefore results from complex interactions between various routes of uptake, excretion, passive release, and metabolization.

For fish, the bioaccumulation process includes two routes of uptake: aqueous uptake of water-borne chemicals, and dietary uptake by ingestion of contaminated food particles.

), tissue bioaccumulation of copper and its effect on sodium contents in some tissues of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) as well as one of its subspecies, mirror carp, were investigated. The two fish were expo sed to a sublethal level of copper ion as 80 µg/L during 21 days.

Bioaccumulation and bioconcentration in fish have been found to be affected by several factors such as the lipid content of tissues, water temperature and feeding habits. Off-flavours of natural origin may develop within a matter of hours if the level of odorous metabolites in the water rises suddenly, for example during the sudden die-off of.

The Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program-Surface Waters conducted a survey of lakes in the northeastern United States during through and analyzed whole fish composite samples for contaminants, including Al, As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Ni, Pb, Se, and Zn.

Using fish tissue contaminant consumption risk levels derived from U.S. Richard Lake (RIC) (°N, °W) is one of the lakes in Sudbury area located about 12 km from the smelter stacks at Copper Cliff in Sudbury.

Contaminants in sediments pose a treat to human health, aquatic life and the environment. National Study of Chemical Residues in Lake Fish Tissue. This study was the first statistically‐based freshwater fish contamination study conducted on a national level.

The purpose of this study was to generate data to protect the health of people and wildlife that eat fish from lakes. This website provides: Information on data.

effects of Hg exposure to organisms in a given ecosystem. The goal of this experiment was to examine the effects of a fish’s diet on bioaccumulation of Hg as it pertains to the trophic position of prey.

This study also sought to determine the distribution of Hg in fish tissues and the change in Hg. The aim of the study was to assess the zinc (Zn), copper (Cu) and selenium (Se) content in freshwater fish from Poland. Selected species of raw, smoked and pickled fish were evaluated by atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS).

The concentration of Zn, Cu and Se in the examined fish ranged from to mg/kg, to mg/kg and to µg/kg, respectively. To evaluate the effect of fish growth on mercury (Hg) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) bioaccumulation, a non-steady state toxicokinetic model, combined with a Wisconsin bioenergetics model, was developed to simulate Hg and PCB bioaccumulation in Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus).

The model was validated by comparing observed versus predicted Hg and PCB concentrations across. gills of post exposure fish to 96hLC50 ( ppm) over 96 h and fish were exposed to sub-lethal concentration 96hLC50/10 ( ppm) for 21 days.

The tissues were dried out in a graded ethanol series and inlayed in paraffin, after being exposed to neutrally buffered formalin for 48 h.

Each block of tissue has been cut into serial sections. The study monitored mercury (Hg) contamination of fish muscle tissue at 13 geographical sites that can be regarded as crucial points for an ecotoxicological assessment of the Czech Republic section of the Elbe River.

The descriptive part of the study was primarily aimed at comparative evaluation of the Hg load during the period contents in fish tissue were below the standard limits defined for each element and Hg depending on fish tissues.

The levels of Pb and Hg metals in muscle tissue were lower than the standard limit for FAO. The value.

Polychlorinated biphenyls Aroclor is used as a surrogate for the other Aroclor mixtures. Mackay et al., () list values of,for the fish oyster and shrimp respectively.

OEHHA. Cr > Zn > Cu > Fe > Mn > Cd > Pb for Tilapia zilli, while that of Clarias gariepinus was Cr > Zn > Fe > Cu > Mn > Cd > Pb. Tilapia zilli showed high bioaccumulation factors ofand for Cr, Zn and Cu, respectively. Claria gariepinus showedand for Cr, Zn and Fe, respectively. This suggests that the fish samples could be used.

Evaluating the degree of metal exposure and bioaccumulation in estuarine organisms is important for understanding the fate of metals in estuarine food webs. We investigated the bioaccumulation of Hg, methylmercury (MeHg), Cd, Se, Pb, and As in common intertidal organisms across a watershed urbanization gradient of coastal marsh sites in New England to relate metal exposure and bioaccumulation.

Hg Bioaccumulation What is Hg bioaccumulation. Effects of Hg Bioaccumulation Hg bioaccumulation is when mercury (Hg) builds up in the food chain over time. The process of which the methylmercury travels up the trophic levels in a given ecosystem is called biomagnification.

With. Fish Bioaccumulation Factors (BAFs; ratios of mercury (Hg) in fish (Hgfish) and water (Hgwater)) are used to develop Total Maximum Daily Load and water quality criteria for Hg-impaired waters.

Both applications require representative Hgfish estimates and, thus, are sensitive to sampling and data-treatment methods.

Bioaccumulation is the gradual accumulation of substances, such as pesticides, or other chemicals in an organism. Bioaccumulation occurs when an organism absorbs a substance at a rate faster than that at which the substance is lost by catabolism andthe longer the biological half-life of a toxic substance, the greater the risk of chronic poisoning, even if environmental levels.
