Abstract

High tributyltin concentrations (2.5~52.5 times those in muscle) were detected in the blood of three cultured fish species (Japanese flounder, red sea bream, yellowtail) and wild flatfish. The result suggests that fish serum or plasma can be used for monitoring butyltin contamination in aquatic biota.
