Why are some species more sensitive to contamination than others? Explain.

There is limited knowledge about the sensitivity of different fish species to environmental pollutants. Such information is pivotal in risk assessment and to understand why some species appear to be more tolerant to contaminants than others. Primary hepatocyte cultures of three marine fish species could be established in the field. Their sensitivity to selected contaminants differs. Flatfish hepatocytes were more susceptible to copper and statin exposure than hepatocytes from cod.
