Physiological status of Mya arenaria is threatened in the Saguenay-Saint Lawrence system due to inputs of many kinds of pollutants from anthropogenic and industrial origins. Investigations of the health of M. arenaria were carried out using metallothioneins concentrations as biomarkers of metallic contamination in relation with concentrations of metals.
