Background and purpose: Hydrocarbons such as Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are considered as priority organic compounds pollutants of the Caspian Sea due to their high toxicity nature. Increasing the concentration of hydrocarbons in the environment has adverse effect on aquatic life and human health. This study was conducted to determine the 16 Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (16PAHs) concentrations in the edible tissue of Cyprinus Carpio in the Caspian Sea.. Material and Methods: A total of 28 samples of fish were collected during winter and spring. All samples were prepared by Soxhlet and extracting processes and then determined using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) instrument. Results: Results showed that pattern of 16PAH compounds were obtained in 82% of samples (23 samples out of 28) for 3, 4 and 5 rings. The mean concentration and standard error (±SE) of edible tissue of Cyprinus Carpio mussels were observed 2.21 (±0.42) μg/g.dw. Conclusion: We observed Pyrene (75%), Fluorathene (61%), Benzo (a) pyrene (43%) and Chrycene (36%) in edible tissue of Cyprinus Carpio. Hence, consumption of this fish could endanger human health.
