Abstract

1. Zn content of liver, pancreas, spleen, kidney, and muscle of zinc-treated and untreated dogfish were analysed. 2. Liver and spleen accumulate Zn after 14 days of treatment; liver, spleen and pancreas, after 25 days. 3. According to the Wilcoxon test, liver Zn accumulation was significantly higher than spleen at 14 days. The pancreas accumulate significantly more Zn than liver and spleen at 25 days. 4. Comparing the results with our work on the effect of Zn in gills, we conclude that when working in sublethal conditions (15 ppm) Zn toxicity would be bound to organs injury. © 1979.
