Bioaccumulation of butyltin compounds by mussels in harbours / by Y.K. Chau, P.T.S. Wong, G.A. Bengert, and J. Yaromich. : En13-5/89-142E-PDF

"The bioaccumulation of butyltin compounds by freshwater mussels (Elliptio complanata) from contaminated sediments has been investigated in the laboratory and in the field in Oshawa and Whitby Harbours in Ontario. Tributyltin (TBT) was concentrated by mussels to higher concentrations in Whitby Harbour than in Oshawa Harbour. Concentrations of TBT in mussels and rates of bioconcentration related positively to the concentration of TBT in sediment"--Abstract, page 1.
