Özet

Norway lobsters, Nephrops norvegicus were exposed for 18 days to combinations of cadmium, copper and zinc st three sublethal concentrations (1, 5, 25 mu g/L for Cd and Cu, and 8, 40 and 200 mu g/L for Zn). Male animals were exposed to all three concentrations, while female animals were studied only in one (highest) concentration of the metals. Activities of Na,K-ATPase and both oligomycin-sensitive and insensitive Mg-ATPase were investigated in relation to metal exposure. A group of male Nephrops of different size groups from a single location in the Clyde Sea was also sampled to investigate the relationship between size and ATPase activity.
