Trace Metals in Fish. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, November 2009, Pages: 116
Langkawi Island is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Malaysia and its rivers are important to the local citizens. Heavy metals are released into the aquatic environment via natural and anthropogenic influx, even low concentrations of these trace metals can cause serious toxic effects to organisms. Harmful substances released by the human activities will be accumulated in marine organisms through the food web. Hence, human health risks might be caused by consumption of seafood contaminated by toxic chemicals. This book, therefore, provides a study of fish quality from selected rivers of Langkawi Island on the safety in consuming local fisheries and also help to determine the ecological food chain of the surrounding population. This book providing basic knowledge of Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, positive and negative effects of various heavy metals, experimental methodology and statistical analysis should be especially useful as a reference to professionals in Chemical Analysis, researchers and health professionals, or as light reading material for general readers.
