Copper in the Ocean Environment

Publisher: American Chemet Corporation
Copper is an essential micronutrient to both plants and animals. This paper reviews a number of studies that investigate copper concentrations in ocean water, sediments and organisms. It compares natural and anthropogenic copper concentrations, and includes the findings of this study, which reveal that large variations in concentrations do occur in ocean water, sediments, and organisms due to naturally occurring and anthropogenic copper. A typical Dose Response Curve for micronutrients such as copper is graphically presented, as well as the relationship between copper in the water and sediments, and in organisms. The levels of copper in Antarctic Krill, Blue Crabs, Bladderwrack, and commercial Salmon Feed are illustrated through figures, and a graph displaying location of fish farm and sampling locations is provided in support of text data.
