dc.description.abstractIn order to better understand the behavior of mercury in Lavaca Bay, the rate and amount of mercury a clean oyster would accumulate when transplanted to a contaminated estuary and the rate of mercury depuration by contaminated oysters placed in a clean environment were investigated. Oysters were also analyzed for Ba, Cu, Fe, P, and Zn to test for involvement with mercury accumulation and depuration.en_US
