Platinum concentrations (mean ± SEM) measured in AMs (in µg/g related to the Pt mass accumulated on 200 mg Chelex-100 beads; data from Labuschagne et al. [12]) and muscle and liver of three different fish species and the water hyacinth, from two impoundments (Olifantsnek Dam and Bospoort Dam) of a Pt mining area in South Africa. Bars with letter superscript represent a significant difference from AM of the same sampling site (p < 0.05), stars show significant differences between the two impoundments (*p < 0.03, **p < 0.002, ****p < 0.0001). Numbers within the bars represent the number of replicates (n)
