  • S. J. S. Anand
Article

Abstract

Determination of mercury, arsenic and cadmium in fish has been carried out by neutron activation followed by chemical separation to remove the interfering activities of copper, zinc, etc. Some of the common varieties of fish have been analysed and their results are presented.
