Résumé

The concentrations of 17 elements were determined in the bone of white suckers (Catostomus commersoni) netted from 5 acid (pH range 4.8 to 5.8) and 2 circumneutral (pH=6.2 and 6.3) lakes in south-central Ontario. The bone Ca:P dry weight ratios were similar (2.0:1) for all fish populations except those of George Lake (pH=4.8) which showed a significantly lower Ca:P ratio (1.9:1, P < 0.05). Magnesium was also lower in the bone of these fish and in fish from 2 other acid lakes. Only bone Ba and S concentrations in the 7 fish populations correlated significantly to lake pH (R=?0.9 and R=?0.8, respectively, P < 0.05). Bone Mn concentrations correlated to dissolved lake Mn concentrations (R=0.8, P < 0.05), and was 7 fold greater in the bone of fish from George Lake and 2 fold greater in King Lake (pH=5.0) fish, vs fish from the 2 circumneutral lakes. Bone Zn was significantly greater in white sucker from George Lake, and tended to be higher in this species from King Lake, compared to all other fish populations. Bone concentrations of Fe, Cu, Ni and A1 showed no apparent trends among the 7 fish populations. Cd, Co, Cr, Mo, V and Be were not detected. The occurrence of a reduced Ca:P ratio coincident with the highest concentrations of Mn, Zn and Ba in the bone of fish from the most acidified environment suggests that increased metal concentrations which occur in surface waters coincident with lake acidification may affect bone calcification.
