Mussels to determine how much contamination is in the ports
Date:7/30/2008

ifferences from one zone to another, for example between water near a shipyard and the open sea", Dr Etxebarria said.

Apart from carrying out a diagnosis of port waters, another aim of the project is to evaluate the methodology and tools of the sampling. The European Directive on water obliges government bodies to monitor contaminants in all canals and along all coasts. "We wish to know if our methodology and the sampling tools that we have developed are useful for this purpose", said Dr Etxebarria. "On the one hand, we have seen that zones supposedly clean are not as clean as we thought; it is necessary to redefine the selection of these clean zones. On the other, we are also perfecting the tool that chemically simulates the role of the mussels, in order to carry out even more precise sampling", he concluded.
