Title: Results of the NRA Welsh regional marine bioaccumulation programme 1991-1993 : SE/EAU/94/8
Author: Gillian Davies
Author: Stephen Ellery
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
A marine bioaccumulation study at 30 sites around the Welsh coastline with Fucus vesiculosus, Mytilus edulis and Cerastoderma edule as the target species, for a suite of determinands consisting of trace metals and organic compounds, commenced in 1993. Prior to that some bioaccumulatitm studies have been carried out, but at a limited number of sites mainly in South Wales (Swansea Bay and the Severn Estuary). Bioaccumulation is a useful addition to water quality monitoring, as substances that only exist in very low levels in the environment (such as trace metals and organic compounds) , can be detected in tissue. Results have to be interpreted very cautiously however, to put them, into context, as there are no Environmental Quality Standards for bioaccumulation.
