Abstract
Atomic absorption spectrometric determination of copper, zinc, manganese, iron, lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic in two fish species from Lake Tanganyika, Burundi, provide values that are lower than most literature data, especially for cadmium, arsenic and mercury. Tissue analysis of Lates stapersii reveals that liver accumulates the highest amount of most elements. The data illustrates that Lake Tanganyika is still a non-polluted area at the time of analysis.
