Abstract
    In a biomonitoring survey, accumulated trace metal concentrations (Cu, Zn, Fe, Cd, Pb, Mn, Ni) have been measured in the talitrid amphipod crustacean Talitrus saltator collected from 13 sites along the Baltic coast of Poland in June Analysis of covariance has shown significant geographical differences in the local bioavailabilities of copper, zinc, iron and manganese. There have been changes in the bioavailabilities of trace metals around the Gulf of Gdansk between 1996 and 1998 reflected in changes in amphipod metal concentration, availabilities of zinc, cadmium and manganese falling, and that of lead rising.
