Abstract: The Esmoriz/Paramos coastal lagoon, is a habitat of ecological importance due to the presence of unique animal and plant species. During the past few years its immersed area has been gradually reduced due to effluent discharges and siltation. The major contaminants in the lagoon are derived from a multitude of nonpoint sources associated with urbanization and industrial activities within the watershed. Heavy metals are probably a class of pollutants contributing to the observed decline of fish species. The metal content in the water and sediments in the lagoon were investigated as well as gill metal bioaccumulation and gill histopathological changes of the grey leaping mullet, Mugil saliens.
