Abstract:Comparative characteristic of several microelements (Ni, Cu, Sr, Al, Zn, Co, Mn, Pb, Cd, Hg, As) found in fish (case study of breams in the Volga basin reservoirs) is presented. Regularities of accumulation of these elements in fish depending on their concentration in the water are analyzed. Main disturbances in fish caused by the accumulation of microelements in their organs and tissues are considered.
