Risk assessment of cadmium levels present in Australian wild-caught prawns
08 August 2014
The distribution of cadmium among prawns is highly skewed, with only small proportions from any location having a Cd concentration exceeding 0.5 mg/kg. King, Tiger and Banana prawns have mean Cd concentrations << 0.5 mg/kg, while Endeavour prawns have a mean Cd concentration of 0.4 mg/kg.
