Abstract

This study, some metals (zinc, copper, lead and cadmium) were analyzed in liver, muscle and gills of Sander lucioperca (Linnaeus, 1758) caught from the HirfanlA +/- Dam Lake in December 2007. The highest concentrations were found in liver (zinc:32.5 mu g/g, lead:10.73 mu g/g, copper:5.85 mu g/g, cadmium:0.76 mu g/g) of Sander lucioperca. It was seen that the accumulation of zinc, lead and cadmium primarily took place in liver followed by muscles and gills. It was observed that copper is mainly accumulated in liver followed by gill and mucsles.
