Abstract

Aliaga Bay (Izmir, Turkey) is one of the contaminated area by domestic and several industrial facilities. The toxicity of contaminated sediment and water of the Bay has investigated by sea urchin spermyotoxicity test. The toxic effects of the samples which were collected from six stations and diluted up to 10(-1) to 10(-3) ml in habitual sea water were determined as fertilization success and the quality of off-springs of Paracentrotus lividus and Arbacia lixula.
