Abstract

This study analyzed the concentrations (dry weight basis) and bioaccumulation factors (BAF) of copper (Cu), lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), and mercury (Hg) in pre- and post-monsoon samples at five stations (Chabahar, Darak, Gowatr, Jask, and Pozm) in the Gulf of Oman. For this purpose, ten samples of hooded oyster Saccostrea cucullata, brown algae Sargassum ilicifolium, and Indian white shrimp Penaeus indicus were collected once a month during fall and spring (a total of 60 samples were obtained from each species per station). Additionally, sediment samples were collected three times a month during these two seasons (ten samples per each season). Our results indicated that metal concentrations were lower than the maximum permitted limit in the sediment across the tested stations (
