The accumulation of cadmium from food and seawater by the blue mussels Mytilus edulis was studied in laboratory conditions.Cadmium uptake from food was found to be just a tenth of that from seawater.The accumulation rate was rather strongly modified by cadmium concentration in seawater.At higher concentration, both, gills and hepatopancreas were the target organs for cadmium, whereas low concentration - cadmium was stored in hepatopancreas only.Considerable fraction of the accumulated cadmium was adsorbed on shell.A distinct difference in the kinetics of cadmium adsorption on shells food and seawater was noticed.
