Abstract

Our study focused on the evaluation of copper concentrations in millet (Mugil cephalus Linné, 1758) caught in the Oran bay. This fish reflects very well the quality of its biotope, it is a very abundant species in the Algerian coastal waters and highly appreciated by the Algerian consumer. The monthly sampling was spread over a period of fourteen months from February 2012 to March 2013 three organs were considered: liver, detoxification organ, gonads, reproductive organs and muscle representing the consumed part by the man. Heavy metal concentrations were determined by the Atomic Flame Absorption Spectrophotometry as a function of several parameters .This study shows that Mugil cephalus contains this desired metal. The results obtained statistically did not reveal any significant difference between the heavy metal contents of the two sexes, in the targeted organs. The concentration levels of this metal indicate a certain pollution of the target area.
