The applicability of Corbicula as a bioindicator for monitoring organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in fresh and brackish waters is presented here. Differences in isomer compositions and OCP bioaccumulation levels were analyzed in western Japan and the Pearl River Delta (PRD) in China. Isomer compositions of DDTs, chlordanes, and HCHs were significantly different between the two areas because of their different historical uses and property of the chemicals. This is represented by the (DDE + DDD)/DDT ratio in Corbicula, ranging 4.9-39 in western Japan and 1.1-2.4 in the PRD. However, isomer compositions in Corbicula reflected those in water, and the different patterns in Corbicula likely reflected the usage history. Concentrations of dissolved oxygen, suspended solids, and volatile suspended solids in water, and the difference in species did not influence OCP bioaccumulative levels in Corbicula when conducting biomonitoring. These levels are likely similar to those in Mytilus galloprovincialis. Therefore, Corbicula could be an appropriate bioindicator for monitoring OCPs in fresh and brackish waters.

A family of gram-negative facultatively anaerobic bacteria, ubiquitous in fresh and brackish water, and associated with GASTROINTESTINAL DISEASES.
A genus of mussels in the family Dreissenidae, class BIVALVIA. They are found in both fresh and brackish water and are not native to North America. Accidentally introduced into the Great Lakes in 1986, they now proliferate widely throughout the United States.
The common name for the phylum of microscopic unicellular ALGAE. Most are aquatic, being found in fresh, brackish, and salt water. Diatoms are noted for the symmetry and sculpturing of their siliceous cell walls. They account for 40% of PHYTOPLANKTON, but not all diatoms are planktonic.
