RECOMMENDED TRACE METAL CONCENTRATIONS IN REFERENCE MATERIALS IAEA-407 SHOULD NOT BE USED AS TOLERABLE LIMITSC.K. YAP
I would like to draw attention on a recently published paper by Mohammed et al. (2012) in Marine Pollution Bulletin (MPB). In the paper, the authors reported well the trace metals in sediments and fish from Trinidad and Tobago. However, they compared some of metal concentrations in fish and sediments with IAEA-407 Tolerable Levels which is actually not mentioned as tolerable levels in the original reports by Wyse et al. (2003). Hence, the comparison is invalid and wrongly interpreted.
