The use of coastal waters as a convenient receptacle for domestic and industrial wastes threatens the quality of seafood rivers and coastal waters are presently exposed to not only anaxara increasing quantities of metals and nutrients, but also the cocktails of industrial derived contaminants, many of which exhibit significant persistence and capabilities for bioaccumulation [ 25 ].

Although blood clams are considered one of the more delicious Chinese delicacies, the style of preparation in Shanghai involves quick-boiling them, leaving many of the viruses and bacteria present.

Unlike other varieties of clams that are safe to eat, the blood clam lives in low-oxygen environments, and thus ingests more viruses and bacteria, including hepatitis Ahepatitis Etyphoidand dysenteryto get the nutrients it needs.

The levels of Cd and Pb from studied sites exceeded the maximum permissible limits set by Malaysian Food Regulations Solid and liquid wastes emanating from the industrial activities are the inevitable byproducts of manufacturing process.

Previous study from the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, in the state of Penang, showed that the levels of heavy metals analyzed for cockles A. It is found throughout the Indo-Pacific region from the eastern coast of South Africa northwards and eastwards to Southeast AsiaAustraliaPolynesiaand up to northern Japan. The concentration of Cd was below the reference values for human consumption set by Malaysian Food Regulations whereas the concentration of Pb was above the reference values.

Scientific Name with Original Description. Umbones strongly protruding, cardinal area rather large. In particular, in highly polluted and industrial areas, point and nonpoint sources of anthropogenic chemicals and metals have polluted rivers with highly complex mixtures of chemicals and other anthropogenic perturbations to degree where life in rivers is severely impacted [ 17 ].

About 18 radial ribs 15 to 20 with wide interstices at each valve.

Therefore, the objective of this study has been to determine the concentrations of two toxic metals Cd and Pb in blood cockles sampled from four different sites near Sabang River of Asajaya. However, it revealed that the cockles in this research area have been contaminated through Cd and Pb caused by agriculture runoff and industrial and other anthropogenic activities which can be the cause of serious human health problems for long term consumption.
