The present work is an attempt to study the mercury levels in six fish species from Shatt AlArab River were determined by cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry, provide values that are lower than the most literature data. We found significant species differences, with Cyprins Carpio having the highest levels and Barbus sharpeyi the lowest levels. The results showed statistically significant differences of total mercury concentration were also found among the individually tested tissues… CONTINUE READING
