Abstract

Bivalve mollusc Sunetla scripta is abundant in the inshore waters of Co chin and is a suitable indicator species of metal pollution. The metal load in the bivalve showed an increase during the monsoon season indicating the apparent influence of river run off and reduction in salinity in the seasonality of metal uptake. In the case of copper, the smaller individuals recorded relatively higher load than that of larger ones.
