Abstract

HEAVY METAL POLLUTION AND ITS IMPACT ON FRESH WATER FISHES OF THE REGION.

Umesh Wagh*, Y. K. Khillare and Kiran Khillare

ABSTRACT

The present study was conducted during 2014-16 to investigate the Heavy metal level such as Arsenic, Nickel, Copper and Chromium in surface water and fishes and their bioaccumulation in various fish organs like Liver, Gill, Kidney and Muscle. The samples were collected from seven different locations and the analyses were carried out by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) method. The results thus revel that the level of the Heavy metals both in water and fish samples as well as various fish organ exceeds the normal range of safety suggested by WHO (1985) and FAO for domestic and human consumption and extremely dangerous for human, agriculture and fisheries though it imparts significant impact on health, reproduction, and survival of the organisms and it is one of the major environmental concern.

Keywords: Heavy Metals, As, Ni, Cu, Cr, WHO, FAO and Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS).
