- ... The physiological effect of complex mixtures of anthropogenic contaminants on aquatic organisms is not well understood. This study employed a suite of sub-cellular biomarkers and general health measurements to assess the effect of urban-derived contaminants on wild freshwater mussels. Adult Lasmigona costata were collected from four sites in the Grand River (ON, Canada) that receive incremental am ...

The effects of NaCl supplementation (0.0%, 2.5%, 5.0%, 7.5% and 10.0% dry weight of a basal diet) on growth, gill histological alterations and osmoregulation of juvenile cobia reared in low‐salinity water (5 g L⁻¹) were assessed. At the end of the experiment, gills were sampled for Na⁺, K⁺‐ATPase activity determination and histological evaluation. In all treatments, no mortality was observed. Resu ...
