Özet

Norway lobsters Nephrops norvegicus were exposed to organic mercury (MeHg), inorganic mercury (Hg), copper (Cu), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) in solution in sea water to determine lethal levels of these metals and to study the influence of sex and size on metal accumulation and tissue distribution (carapace, hepatopancreas, gills, tail muscle, ovary and external eggs).
