The Musi river estuary plays an important role as one of the fishing grounds. The high activity in the musi estuary has an impact on the ecosystems in this region, including the negative impact in the form of ecosystem changes caused by heavy metals. The aim of this study was to determine the concentrations of heavy metals (Pb and Cu) in Alepesvariand Johniusbelangerii in the Musi river estuary. Fish were obtained from fishermen who used the Gillnet Millennium (Ply) gear in July 2018 and were analyzed using the Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). The results showed that the concentration ofÂ PbÂ in J. belangerii was greater than A. vari, but the concentration of CuÂ inÂ A. variÂ was greater than inÂ J. belangerii. Concentration ofÂ Pb has exceeded the limit for safe consumption based on National Agency of Drug and Food Control.
