Abstract

This paper presents results related to a study of toxic heavy metals concentrations (Cd, Cu, Hg and Zn) in Crassostrea gasar (mangrove oyster). A comparative study is made between samples collected in urban region (Abidjan) and those from rural areas (Assinie-Mafia and Assouindé). Toxic metals concentrations in oyster samples collected in urban zone are higher than those in rural samples, as a result of chemical pollution due to urban and industrial wastes. Correlations between pollutants-weight of organisms and pollutants are good.
