abstract = "Concentrations of Al, As, Bi, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, U, V and Zn were quantified in surface sediments collected from 13 different sampling sites from Cau Hai lagoon in Central Vietnam, and in 8 wild and farmed-fishes involving both pelagic and benthic species. Multivariate analysis shows that these trace elements are mainly associated with lithogenic matter, and are most likely the result of alteration and erosion processes in the lagoon. Enrichment factors and geo-accumulation indices reveal substantial sediment enrichments for both As and Bi with respect to the mean composition in the upper continental crust. As is enriched in the edible portion of fish tissue with values up to 10 times higher than the allowed limits set up by Health Canada. Target hazard quotient and target carcinogenic risk for As were assessed through fish diet and were greater than 1 and 10-4, respectively, indicating potential health risks for fish consumers in Cau Hai lagoon.",
