About this book

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 Ag, Al, Cd, Pb, Hg, As, Sr, and U have no known nutritive function in fish at present, but are toxic at fairly low levels. 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 covers metals that are either proven to be or are strongly suspected to be essential in trace amounts, yet are toxic in higher doses.
