Accumulation and seasonal variation of toxic and trace elements in tissues of Cyprinus carpio from semi-intensive aquaculture ponds
We analyzed toxic and trace elements in carp from fish ponds. Fish liver was the main target organ for accumulation of Cu, Se and Zn, and dorsal muscle for Sr and Li. Fish liver showed a decrease of a range of elements towards the end of season. Arsenic was uniformly distributed in fish organs showing potential to build up in edible parts.
