Abstract:

A study of the determination of the uptake of barium levels in soft muscle tissues of Niger Delta Mudskipper, (Periophthalmus barbarus) were analyzed using Buck Scientific Atomic Absorption and Emission Spectrophotometer 200A (AAS). The values obtained ranged from 22 g/g-510 g/g. Statistical analysis showed no significant difference (p<0.05) with respect to percent concentrations and uptake levels of barium. Generally, it was observed that as concentrations increased, the levels of barium uptake increased progressively in the soft muscle tissues of the exposed experimental fish.
