Toxicity and bioaccumulation of cadmium in the freshwater bivalve Lamellidens marginalis

Author(s):

TS Pathan, SV Rankhamb and Shaikh Yasmeen

Abstract:

The influence of different concentrations of cadmium on Bivalve Lamellidens marginalis was examined by a toxicity experiment. Acute toxicity was analyzed by measurement of the 96hrs LC50 and daily survival rates. Results indicated that the mortality rate of Lamellidens marginalis was proportional to the concentration of cadmium. LC50 after 96 hrs. the bioaccumulation value of the pollutant in the Lamellidens marginalis’s soft parts. The bioaccumulation of cadmium in the organism increased by increasing the concentration of cadmium in solution. The increase of cadmium in the organism was not steady, but it took the form of sudden increase after increasing the concentration of cadmium in solution.
