Abstract

A variety of guidelines have been proposed in recent years for linking selenium concentrations in the whole body of fish or in diet with adverse effects in fish. Diverging viewpoints seem to be forming separating groups supporting either the low-selenium guidelines proposed by the government and academic researchers or the high-selenium guidelines proposed by other researchers. Recently, an article was published that reviewed selected studies and recommended guidelines for selenium concentrations in the whole body of fish and in diet that were higher than those proposed by other researchers (approximately 4 microg/g in whole body and 3-4 microg/g in diet). That article also recommended separating guidelines for coldwater fish (6 microg/g in whole body and 11 microg/g in diet) and warmwater fish (9 microg/g in whole body and 10 microg/g in diet). The approaches, information, and guidelines presented in the article are reviewed and problems in their interpretation and conclusions are discussed. The majority of the selenium literature supports a whole-body threshold of 4 microg/g in fish and 3 microg/g in diet.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 January 2006.
All research outputs
#3,495,746
of 12,211,783 outputs
Outputs from Ecotoxicology & Environmental Safety
#287
of 2,756 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#112,438
of 333,080 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ecotoxicology & Environmental Safety
#9
of 123 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,211,783 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,756 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 333,080 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 123 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
