Abstract
    It is of particular importance to provide information on toxic metals to Polish exporters who will use it to demonstrate the quality of their products and to health authorities to assist in determining the dietary exposure of Polish consumers to toxic metals. This research was conducted on the muscle tissue of the basic species of fish taken from the southern Baltic (herring Clupea harengus, sprat Sprattus sprattus, cod Gadus morhua, flounder Platichthys flesus) in 1995-1997. The results were compared with data which have been recorded since 1991. In the period examined, changes in some heavy metal concentrations in the fish were observed. Currently, these concentrations are at a low level. Differences in toxic metal content depends on the fish species aswell as on their habitat.
