Meeting of the Regional Task Force on Eutrophication and HABs, 16-18 Jan. 2018, Muscat, Oman

Contaminant Screening


Trace Metals

  • The majority of trace metals concentrations in sediments and biota correspond to natural background levels in marine environments
  • Mercury concentrations continue to be very low in sediment and the observed total Hg levels in fish (Hamoor) maintained to be below the 0.5 µg g-1 (wet wt) threshold
  • Unexplained high concentrations of Arsenic have been maintained in some bivalves during 1994-2005
  • Nickel and Chrome dominant in high concentration in almost all collected inter-tidal sediments
Examples of Obtained Results
