The increasing levels of heavy metals in the environment, their entry into the food chain and the overall health effects on people who consume fish are of the major concern to researches in the field of food and nutrition, because heavy metal toxicity is a result of long term, low level exposure to pollutants through air, water and numerous consumer food products.Heavy metals are environmental pollutants and their toxicity is a problem in increasing significance of ecological, evolutionary and nutritional reasons. They are ubiquitous in environment and higher concentrations poses serious threat to the aquatic ecosystem.
