About this book

This volume synthesizes the explosion of new information on the molecular, cellular, and organismal handling of metals in fish in the past 15 years. These elements are no longer viewed by fish physiologists as 'heavy metals' that kill fish by suffocation, but rather as interesting moieties that enter and leave fish by specific pathways, which are subject to physiological regulation.

The metals featured in this volume are those about which there has been most public and scientific concern, and therefore are those most widely studied by fish researchers. Metals such as Cu, Zn, Fe, Ni, Co, Se, Mo and Cr are either proven to be or are strongly suspected to be essential in trace amounts, yet are toxic in higher doses.

All major essential metals of interest are covered in metal-specific chapters. Each metal-specific chapter is written by fish physiologists/toxicologists who are recognized authorities for that metal.

A companion volume features metals that have no known nutritive function in fish at present and a common format is featured throughout this two-volume edition.
