RISK CHARACTERIZATION OF A COASTAL ENVIRONMENT FACING A MINING AND INDUSTRIAL AREA IN SARDINIA (SULCIS-IGLESIENTE) BY MEANS OF CLUSTER SAMPLING AND CONTAMINANTS RESEARCH ON EDIBLE FISH AND CLAMS
AbstractOn the basis of the results obtained from the analysis carried out on various environmental substrates (sediments, sea water and bio-indicators), it can be assumed that there has been a transfer of contaminants from sediments to edible “biota” in the Boi Cerbus lagoon (Sulcis-Iglesiente). It has also been verified that the benthic clams, in particular the Cerastoderma glaucum, is the species mainly affected by heavy metals contamination, in particular Lead, even if the role of Cadmium in the lagoon would need further investigation.
