Fish is a good source of protein and extensively used as a food item in Pakistan, this entails the evaluation of toxic elements (Hg, Se, As, Pb, Cd and Br) in five different species commonly consumed. Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) and Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS) were utilized for the analysis. Our results were compared with results reported from other countries. The weekly dietary intake of toxic elements through these species has been estimated, which is well below the tolerance limit. The reliability of the techniques has been established by the use of standard reference materials. This data will serve as the baseline values and will be helpful to monitor the degree of future contamination.
