Abstract

Background: This study aimed to determine the total mercury (T-Hg) concentration in the common Carp muscles (Cyprinus carpio) fish species and surface water where they are collected.. Material and methods: The fish and water samples were collected from Azadegan Aquaculture complex in Khuzestan, Iran during November of 2011 and the concentration of T-Hg was determined by Direct Mercury Analyzer-80.. Results: The mean T-Hg concentration in Cyprinus carpio was 0.52±0.25 μg T-Hg/kg for wet weight fish tissue. Average T-Hg concentrations for water sample from tree point of the pond were 2.10 ±0.001 μg/kg, 2.12±0.003 μg/kg and 2.11±0.08 μg/kg correspondingly..
