CHEMSEA initiates toxicity studies on blue mussels


The Finnish Environment Institute has begun a study to measure the accumulation of chemical substances in the tissues of blue mussels at the chemical munitions dumpsite of Bornholm Deep.


The study began in late May, when eight mussel cages containing a total of 3200 mussels were deployed at various stations and depths at the Bornholm Deep site. The cages will be left underwater until mid August, when they will be recovered to conduct chemical and biochemical analyses of the mussel tissues. The cages also contain a variety of underwater instruments that will record temperature, salinity and oxygen levels in the water.

 

Stay tuned for preliminary results of this study!
