Abstract: The concentration of cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) in the raft cultivated Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis from the Sinop Peninsula, in the Black Sea were investigated seasonally. The mean concentrations of Cd, Cu and Zn in the soft tissues were 2.530.19, 6.980.31 and 228.0016.75 g g 1 dry weights (dw), respectively. There were no significant differences between the metal concentrations among the seasons (p>0.05). Cd and Zn levels were higher than legislative limits, while Cu level was below. The Cd and Zn concentrations in cultivated area were danger to human health or human consumption.
