Abstract: The aim of present study was to evaluate the biochemical composition and concentrations of heavy metals in Catlacatla, Cirrhinus mrigala and Labeorohita. Four different weights were captured from Chachar fish pond of Kashmore district. Preferred heavy elements like Iron, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Nickel, Cadmium and Chromium was analyzed in gills, liver and muscle of economically important fish species found in ponds of Kashmore district. The fish samples were captured by using fish nets with help of professional fishermen of sampling area and were transported to laboratories of Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur for further procedures like dissection, digestion and analysis. Elemental assessment was carried out by using inductively coupled Plasma Atomic Emission spectrophotometer from Institute of chemical sciences Bahuddin Zakrya University, Multan, Pakistan. Obtained results showed the order for concentration of metals were obtained high in Catlacatla>Cirrhinus mrigala>Labeorohita fish organs and maximum concentration of heavy metals was found in gills as compared to rest of organs of these species. Similarly the level of these heavy metals followed the order of concentration as Cu ˃ Fe > Zn >Mn> Ni > Cd > Cr respectively. The concentration of Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, Ni, Cd, Cr were ranges in Catlacatla as (2.4-1.1, 3.5-1.2, 18-9, 0.54-0.12, 0.98-0.18, 0.09-0.02, 0.06µg/g-0.01µg/g, Cirrhinus mrigala 2.4-1.2, 3.4-0.4, 17.5-11.3, 0.68-0.15, 0.95-0.47, 0.054-0.011, 0.067µg/g-0.012µg/g and in Labeorohita3.4-1.0, 3.2-1.2, 18-10, 0.87-0.10, 0.94-0.11, 0.078-0.012, 0.068µg/g-0.022µg/g. The concentration of these heavy metals was found within the safe limits as “recommended daily allowance (RDA) Guide line proposed by WHO/FAO”.
