|Issue Date:||2017||Journal:||Marine Pollution Bulletin||Abstract:||This work investigates whether a submarine volcanic eruption off El Hierro (Canary Islands) in October 2011 influenced the metal contents of two deep water cephalopod species: Abraliopsis morisii and Pyroteuthis margaritifera. This was assessed by comparing metal contents in specimens collected off the island of El Hierro and in the neighbouring islands of La Palma and Tenerife during an experimental deep water fishing trip. The concentration of 20 heavy metals was analyzed in 180 specimens of A. morisii and P. margaritifera collected around the three islands to test for inter-island differences for each species and metal. While both species showed geographical differences in metal concentrations, the main finding was that A. morisii could be a bioindicator species for metals such as Li, Sr and Ca.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/40283||ISSN:||0025-326X||DOI:||10.1016/j.marpolbul.2017.10.017||Source:||Marine Pollution Bulletin [ISSN 0025-326X], v. 129, p. 474-479|
