Best Answer

In the blood of vertebrates and some invertebrates iron ions bound in a protein complex called hemoglobin transports oxygen.

In the blood of many invertebrates copper ions bound in a protein complex called hemocyanin transports oxygen.

However it is very likely that unbound sodium ions in the blood plasma outnumber the iron ions or copper ions in either case.
