The trace metals species in surface sediments of the Taiwanese river estuarine mouths and the Taiwan Strait were examined by sequential extraction method. Based on the metal species present in sediments, trace metals can be divided into three groups: (1) Co, Cr, Fe, Ni and Zn; (2) Cu and Hg; and (3) Mn and Pb. The total concentrations of trace metals in the first two groups are dominated by the residual fraction. While, Cu and Hg their organic species also contributes a significant percentage and reduces the residual fraction portion. Lead and Mn are dominated by the labile fraction. The total metal concentrations in the analyzed sediments seem to be influenced by Fe oxides, TOC and grain size. The metals contamination status assessed by three environmental indices suggests that the analyzed sediments are minor contaminated by trace metals, with a few exceptions of Cu and Hg at some stations.
