AbstractLivers from 43 Loligo opalescens, 14 Ommastrephes bartrami, and 7 Symplectoteuthis oualaniensis were analyzed for their silver, cadmium, copper, zinc and iron contents. Copper concentrations of up to 15,000 μg/g dry weight were found in L. opalescens in conjunction with significant correlations between this element and Ag, Cd and Zn. The latter elements are known to affect Cu metabolism in terrestrial organisms; however, whether the correlations occurring in marine organisms represent casual, or cause and effect, relationships is as yet unknown.
