This paper deals with changes in the Fe, Zn, Cu, Cd, Mn, Pb, and Ni concentration in the muscle, gonad, mantle, gills, digestive gland, and kidneys of Gray mussels transplanted from two sites differing in the extent of metal contamination to a biotope with the impact from anthropogenic conditions in the course of their acclimatization. The rate of metal accumulation depended on the initial element concentration in the mussel organs. An abrupt change in the metal concentration in the environment was followed by a disturbance in the microelement balance in some organs. The microelement metabolism was shown to depend on mussel preadaptation to a changeable environment.
