Concentrations of copper, zinc, manganese, and iron were determined in muscle tissue of coastal fish (Pumpus argentius, Tenulosa ilisha and Rastrelliger kanagurta) and fresh water fish (Hypophthalmichthys molithrix and Cirhinnus mrigela) samples from West Bengal, India, for assessing the potential health risk to human population. The concentrations of Cu, Zn, Mn and Fe in coastal fish muscles were ranged between 0.79-4.0 mg kg-1 dw, 5-29 mg kg-1 dw, 0.50-5.0 mg kg-1 dw and 20-75 mg kg-1 dw… CONTINUE READING
