Determination and Comparison of Heavy Metals (Hg, Cd, Pb and As) of Barbusgrypus and Capoetacapoeta in Heleh River from Iran

Abstract—This Study was carried out to investigate contamination of heavy metals Hg, Cd, Pb and As in muscle of Barbusgrypus and Capoetacapoeta in Heleh river from Iran. Heavy metal levels in fish samples were analyzed by Perkin Elmer 4100 ZL atomic absorption. The highest concentration of Hg, Cd, Pb and As were measured in muscle of Barbusgrypus and the lowest concentration of Hg, Cd, Pb and As in muscle of Capoetacapoeta. Concentrations of heavy metals Cd, Pb and As in muscle of Barbusgrypus and Capoetacapoeta were showed significant difference (P < 0.05), but for Hg there was no significant difference (P > 0.05). Heavy metal concentrations were higher in the Barbusgrypus, whereas compared with Capoetacapoeta.

Index TermsBarbusgrypus, Capoetacapoeta, heavy metal, Heleh River, Persian Gulf.
