Author(s): Quratulan Ahmed, Levent Bat

Abstract: Zn, Ni, B, Al and Co concentrations were determined in muscle tissues of Megalaspis cordyla from fish marketed by Karachi Fish Harbor of Pakistan during January 2007- December 2007. The mean (±SE) of Zn, Ni, B, Al and Co levels in fish muscle tissues were 3±0.25, 0.25±0.035, 0.24±0.038, 0.29±0.026 and 0.24±0.027 mg/kg dry wt., respectively. It was concluded that the level of heavy metals in muscles of the fish species were within acceptable limits by international standards.
