Abstract:
We analysed concentrations of zinc, copper and lead in the muscle of two commercially important finfish species namely, Liza parsia and Liza tade in the western and central sectors of Gangetic delta region during 14th to 19th March, 2016 using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Metal accumulation followed the order Zn > Cu > Pb. Between the two species, the degree of metal accumulation was found to be in the order Liza parsia > Liza tade, which may be the result of difference in their food habit or degree of exposure to ambient media contaminated with heavy metals. Heavy metals in the edible parts of the investigated finfish species were compared with the permissible safety levels for human uses.
Keywords: Heavy metals, Liza parsia, Liza tade, Gangetic delta region, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer
