Toxic and essential trace element, contents of six fish and two prawn species from Keti Bunder were determined by atomic absorption spectrometry. The mean concentrations (μg g wet weight) of toxic and trace elements in the muscle of fish and prawn were Cd: 0.024-0.035 and 0.025-0.026, As: nd-0.014 and 0.0030.01, Ni: 0.149-1.420 and 0.155-0.157, Pb: 0.001-3.600 and 0.098-0.100, Zn: 0.460-1.490 and 0.250-1.454, Cu: 0.001-2.800 and 0.003-0.006, Fe: 0.081-7.350 and 0.085-0.133, Cr: 0.209-2.309 and… CONTINUE READING
