Abstract

Abstract This paper describes the distributions, biogeochemical behaviour and impact of metals in the marine environment with specific reference to Cd, Cu, Hg, Pb, Sn (including the butyl tins) and Zn. The discussion includes key processes affecting the transport and reactivity of these toxic metals, and in particular their partitioning between the dissolved and solid phases. The concentrations of the metals in selected marine organisms are discussed in the context of the impact on the quality of seafood for human consumption.
