In this study, the metal accumulation in the liver, gill and muscle tissues of common carp (C. carpio) exposed to copper, zinc and copper-zinc was investigated. It was shown that except for the zinc accumulation in gill tissues under copper-zinc treatment, the highest copper and zinc accumulation was measured in the liver, whereas the accumulation of copper and zinc was lowest in the muscle tissues.
