Table 2: Quantification of total mercury (HgT) and selenium (Se) values (μg g−1) in liver and kidney of zeabra-seabreams exposed to different treatments at days 28 and 42. Results were previously reported in Branco et al. [34]. MeHg: exposure to Methylmercury; HgII: exposure to Hg2+; MeHgSe: co-exposure to MeHg and Se; HgSe: co-exposure to Hg2+ and Se; MeHgRSe: exposure to MeHg followed by exposure to Se during depuration; HgRSe: exposure to Hg2+ followed by exposure to Se during depuration; Se: exposure to selenium; C: control group.
