Sažetak
The aim of this investigation was to determine the levels of heavy metals and metalloid in freshwater fish from the Zagreb area. A total of 216 freshwater fish samples from 5 sites were examined: Sava river upstream from Zagreb, Sava river at Zagreb, Sava river downstream from Zagreb, Jarun Lake, and 5 »ecologic« fishponds from the Zagreb surroundings. The metals lead, cadmium, mercury and the metalloid arsenic were determined by the method of atomic absorption spectrometry. The mean pooled levels of lead, cadmium and arsenic in all fish samples were 112.3±95 μg/kg, 8.5±11 μg/kg and 23.5±36 μg/kg, and did not exceed the allowed levels of 1, 000 mg/kg, 100 μg/kg and 200 μg/kg, respectively. In 4 fish samples, the levels of mercury exceeded the allowed limit of 500 μg/kg (509, 596, 605 and 788 μg/kg), however, the pooled mean level of mercury was 127.8±90 μg/kg. There was no major difference in the levels of heavy metals between the two fish families observed, although the levels of lead, cadmium and mercury were higher in the family Ictaluridae (144 vs. 107 μg/kg, 10.4 vs. 8.2 μg/kg, and 153 vs. 124 μg/kg, respectively), whereas the level of arsenic was higher in the family Cyprinidae (23.8 vs. 21.8 μg/kg). Although the Sava river at Zagreb is the main recipient of sewage and wastewater in the Republic of Croatia, the levels of heavy metals were within the allowed limits in all groups of freshwater fish samples, with the exception of 4 samples that contained moderately elevated levels of mercury. Study results suggest that only mercury could be considered a good indicator of environmental pollution, because higher levels of mercury were measured in the fish from the Sava river than in the fish from the Jarun Lake and fishponds from the Zagreb surroundings, considering both pooleded and fish family specified data.
