Article's abstract:

Organotin compounds have been found different application in industries, agricultures and pharmacological sciences via their various physical and biological specifications. One of the most important applications of these compounds, especially tributyltin TBT is in marine antifouling paints and coatings. Concern about the accumulation of tributyltin compounds on fish and shellfish and the adverse effect on marine life, the application of these compounds has been severely forbidden from January 1st, 2008. In this article, statistical survey was used to investigate effective parameters of tributyltin chloride bioaccumulation with food in one of the native fish species of Persian Gulf, Scat fish Scatophagus argus, within a time period of 21 days at marine simulated aquarium bioassay. The Design Expert software was applied for statistical analysis of effects of biocide concentration in food and exposure time on compound concentration variations in fish tissues.
