This study aimed at investigating the accumulation and potential risks of eight metal(loid)s in fish from natural and culturing water samples in Northeast China. Chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb) and mercury (Hg) contents in 16 fish species (155 samples) and sediments of their habitats were analyzed. In general, the concentrations of these eight metal(loid)s in most fish samples are lower than the guideline levels and legal limits, and the… Expand

Heavy Metal Levels in Fish from Heilongjiang River and Potential Health Risk Assessment
Metal bioaccumulation in fish were poorly correlated with fish sizes, and generally tended to increase with trophic levels, and the hazard quotient values of all fish species were far below 1 for general population and fishermen. Expand
Study on heavy metals levels and its risk assessment in some edible fishes from Bangshi River, Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh.
It was showed that, Zn was the most and Cd was the least accumulated metal in the studied fish muscles, and there was no possible health risk to consumers due to intake of studied fishes under the current consumption rate. Expand

Pollution levels and ecological risks of heavy metals in surface sediments presented higher in the mainstream region than other important rivers and lakes in China, and source apportionment found Hejiagou and Ashi River were the main contributors to metal pollution of this region. Expand
Heavy metals in fish tissues/stomach contents in four marine wild commercially valuable fish species from the western continental shelf of South China Sea.
Concentrations of heavy metals in all species were below their acceptable daily upper limit, suggesting human consumption of these wild fish species may be safe, with health risk assessment based on the target hazard quotients (THQ) and total THQ, indicating no significant adverse health effects with consumption.
