Abstract

Prevalence of external abnormalities was unevenly distributed with significant differences between sites for each of four target species of fish (Archosargus rhomboidalis - sea bream, Haemulon sciurus - blue striped grunt, Lagodon rhomboides - pinfish and Lutjanus griseus grey snapper) and one crab species (Callinectes sapidus - blue crab. No correlations were found between contaminant concentrations and the distribution of abnormalities in the invididual fish species or blue crab except between sediment copper levels and abnormalities in blue striped grunt. -from Authors
