Analysis of trace elements and heavy metals in commercially important spiny lobster species from north east coast of Andhra Pradesh, India


Author(s): Pavan Kumar Kommuri, Mugada Naresh and Ramesh Babu Kondamudi

Abstract: The present study was aimed to evaluate the concentrations of different elements Li, Al, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Zn, As, Rb, Sr, Cd, Ba, Pb in muscle tissue of lobster species (Panulirus homarus, Panulirus polyphagus, and Panulirus versicolor) from the North East Coast of Andhra Pradesh. Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) was used to determine trace elements and heavy metals in lobster muscle tissue samples. The concentrations were expressed as μg/l wet weight. The order of trace metal concentrations were found as Zn>As>Cu>Fe>Al>Sr>Rb>Mn>Li>Co>Cd in P. homarus and Zn>Sr>As>Fe>Cu>Rb>Cr>Ba>Cd>Mn>Li>V>Al>Co>Pb in P. polyphagus. Whereas, the metal concentrations of P. versicolor were Zn>As>Cu>Sr>Al>Fe>Rb>Ba>Mn>Li>Cd>V>Co>Pb respectively. While the chromium element was not detected in P. versicolor. The present study in Panulirus homarus, Panulirus polyphagus and Panulirus versicolor species of lobsters the Zn element was showed highest concentration mean value than other 14 elements. The lowest mean values were obtained in Pb and Co elements in P. polyphagus, P. versicolor, and Pb was not detected in P. homarus species of lobsters. Throughout the North East Coast of Andhra Pradesh this is the first attempt of these elements in lobster species (P. homarus, P. polyphagus, and Panulirus versicolor) from the Bay of Bengal.
