Abstract : Marine organisms exposed to organotin antifoulants accumulate solvent extractable tin in their tissues. Accumulation in oysters does not appear to reach an equilibrium after 60 days of exposure, while fish appear to be able to deal with tributyltin fairly efficiently. Depuration of tributyltin in oysters occurs at 5 percent/day to give a calculated half-life of about 2 weeks.
