Description 
Summary

The project comprised: 1) a study of pollutants' transfer from industrial areas of Sado and Tagus estuaries to estuarine areas of greater biological productivity; 2) identification of areas subject to lesser impact of pollution and contribution to the characterisation of suitable areas for aquaculture; 3) determination of bioaccumulation of pollutants in fishery resources of estuaries.
