Adult Palaemonetes pugio were studied to compare effects of sublethal concentrations of cadmium (50 ppb) under static and flow-through conditions. Measurement used to determine the effects of Cd on the adult shrimp included survival and respiration rates. In addition, the total body burden of Cd after seven days exposure was measured.
