Authors(4) :-Sayed Zarin Sana, Shamim Ahmed Malik, S. A. Jadhav, Shakera A. Inamdar

Accidental industrial spills may lead to a high concentration of toxic metals in the aquatic environment which may leadto acute and chronic toxicity. Of all aquatic species, fish are particularly sensitive towaterborne contamination and are recognized as bioindicators for water quality monitoring. Thepresent study was planned to enumerate the accumulation of heavy metals like Fe, Cu, Ni and Zn in various tissues of fish like muscles,gills,liver, and kidneys). Level of these metals in different organs of fish were determined by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS).Total proteins and levels of antioxidant enzymes, Thiobarbituric acid reactive substance (TBARS), Superoxide dismutase (SOD) andCatalase(CAT) in the tissuesof the Indian major carps were measured.
