|Abstract:||NH3 values were above recommended limits mostly along the year. The trend of metal mean contents found in the fish were in decreasing order of Zn > Cu > Pb > Cd, and the liver showed greater accumulation than muscle. The highest amounts of metals accumulated in fish liver and muscle were recorded in winter and autumn, respectively, while the lowest amount was recorded in summer. Regarding fish muscle which is the edible part consumed by human, the concentration of studied metals was within the safe limits for seafood except for Pb. MT showed a significant high level in response to metals accumulated in fish liver. A positive correlation occurred between MT levels and Cu and Pb concentrations across different seasons.|
