Appendix 3. Final Report for selenium concentration in pilchard from Albany

Jones, B.ORCID: 0000-0002-0773-2007 (2011) Appendix 3. Final Report for selenium concentration in pilchard from Albany. In: Goetze, R. and Mackey, P., (eds.) Selenium and mercury concentrations in the sediments and pilchards (Sardinops sagax) of King George Sound and the broader Albany waters. Albany Port Authority, pp. 27-32.



Samples of pilchards from along the south coast of Western Australia obtained by the Department of Fisheries with the assistance of industry and the Albany Port Authority have established that pilchards from King George Sound are no higher in Selenium than pilchards from elsewhere on the south coast of Western Australia, nor are they different from the selenium levels reported for the same pilchard species caught off South Africa. Levels of Se in pilchards are naturally high, but are not as high as in other pelagic tunas caught in the open ocean.
