Abstract Samples of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), saithe (Pollacius virens), blue mussel (Mytilus edulis), brown seaweed (Ascophyllum nodosum) and sediment were collected from six different fish farms. Five of the farms used net pens treated with copper-containing coatings, whereas one farm did not use copper-containing coating (this was used as a reference location). Samples of muscle, liver and gills of Atlantic salmon and saithe, blue mussel and brown seaweed were freeze dried, homogenised, wet digested and analysed for copper by flame atomic absorption spectrometry. The results showed no significant differences in copper concentrations among the samples from the different locations. The copper contents of some of the samples appeared to be in the upper part of the normal concentration range. From a nutritional point of view, the use of copper-coatings on net pens did not affect the quality of the seafood products either within, or around the net pen.
