Abstract
The many tons of trace metals, including lead, released annually into the California coastal basins have resulted in high concentrations in sediments of these basins. Frozen muscle sample from Microstromus pacificus collected in this area were examined for lead levels using both atomic absorption spectroscopy and proton- induced X-ray emission analysis. Considerable inter-animal variation was observed with levels higher than that commonly measured in canned foods being recorded. Findings suggest the need for epidemiological evaluation of human populations consumption of fish comparing the absorption of lead from ingested fish with that of lead from other sources.
