AbstractMussels (Mytilus californianus) transplanted to San Francisco Bay exhibited elevated trace metal concentrations compared with those in other mussel watch studies on the west coast of the United States. The highest concentrations of Ag, Cu, Hg, Mn, Pb and Zn were at the South Bay stations, and often in the Redwood Creek area. Ag and Hg concentrations were linearly correlated with station distance from the North Bay (San Pablo Bay), indicating that the South Bay is a major reservoir of these pollutants within San Francisco Bay. © 1986.
