Abstract

The concentrations of heavy metals and metals (Zn, Pb, Bi, Cd, Ni, Co, Fe, Mn, Mg, Cu, Cr, Ca, Sr, Na, Li, K) were measured in muscle of five species Cyprinus carpio (from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam), Scardinius erythrophthalmus (from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam), Tinca tinca (from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam), C. carpio (from Karacaoren dam), Carassius carassius (from Karacaoren dam) caught from IAYA +/- klA +/- and Karacaoren. The highest metal was Na (466.95 mu g/g) in C. carassius, while the lowest levels were Fe (0.37 mu g/g) and Cu (0.37 mu g/g) in C. carpio from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam. The mean concentrations mu g/g d.w. some of heavy metals in muscle of C. carpio (from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam), S. erythrophthalmus (from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam), T. tinca (from IAYA +/- klA +/- dam), C. carpio (from Karacaoren dam), C. carassius ( from Karacaoren dam) were as follows: Cd 2.00-2.10-1.95-2.06-2.27, Zn 4.36-2.64-13.13-13.33-24.47, Pb 1.65-1.24-1.90-2.37-2.41, Co 2.46-2.37-2.48-2.58-2.80, Mg 138.51-154.35-218.59-204.58-202.16, Fe 0.37-2.62-3.17-3.01-12.33, respectively.
