For this purpose, fish were exposed to 0 (control), 3, 5, 8, 10, 13 mg Zn/L and 0 (control), 0.01, 0.025, 0.05, 0.075, 0.1 mg Cu/L concentrations in the water. At the end of thestudy period, the concentrations of zinc and copper in tissue were measured by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The values of zinc in the whole body tissues were 1.41 (control), 113.70, 105.09, 161.18, 167.25, 178.66 μg/g (dry-weight) in the fish exposed to 0 (control), 3, 5, 8, 10, 13 mg Zn/L concentrations, respectively, while copper were 1.45 (control), 2.49, 3.41, 3.83, 3.91, 5.04 μg/g (dry-weight) in the fish exposed to 0 (control), 0.01, 0.025, 0.05, 0.075, 0.1 mg Cu/L concentrations, respectively. The results of this study indicated that accumulation of zinc and copper in the body tissues had increased with increasing metal concentrations in the medium.
