Working now on the possible effects upon coral reef organisms (benthic, plaktonic or fishes) of Fe (iron) hydroxyde outputs from a desalt plant unit I would like receiving our observations or comments.
For example, in the area of Marseilles seawage output (W. Mediterranean sea), Fe hydroxydes induce a bioaccumulation of Fe cristals in the stomach and the axial gland of the local common seaurchin Paracentrotus lividus.
What is know in the tropical coral reef environments upon marine organisms ?
Thanks for your help. Please send answer to my mail-address.
