Concentrations of Hg and other metals such as Ag, Cr, Co and Ni in soft tissues and byssi of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) from three sites along the east coast of Kyushu Island, Japan, were determined by a cold-vapor technique. Large inter-regional differences in metal concentrations in both soft tissues and byssi were observed. The tissue concentrations of Hg were significantly greater in M. edulis from the most contaminated locations (Saganoseki) compared to those from a non-industrialized area (Urashiro). It is evident that, compared to the soft tissue, byssus is a more sensitive biomonitor for Hg, Cr, Co and Ni. From the data obtained in the present study evidently results that the soft tissue and especially byssi of M. edulis appear to be good bioindicators for identification of coastal areas exposed to Hg contaminants.
