Determination of concentration of heavy metals viz. As, Cr, Cu, Ni, and Zn in the tissue samples of fresh water fish Catla catla, using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (Thermo fisher - model AA-303). The concentration observed in this study when compared with national and international standard given by WHO and FAO, it was found that some of them are of great concern and exceeds the limit given by WHO/FAO, this is might be due industrial effluents, agricultural influx and some anthropogenic activities.
