Abstract: 
Some heavy metal contents were investigated in water, sediments and Crayfish, Astacus leptodactylus, muscle, Abbasay river. Sampling (water, sediments and Crayfish's muscle), had been conducted in six stations in September 2003. After chemical analysis, rate of heavy metals was evaluated by Atomic Absorbtion Spectrophtometry (A.A.S). Mean Cu, Pb, Cd, Cr, Zn, Ba and Fe in water were 6.95, 1.33, 2.62, 3.28, 124.2, 134.96 and 5.06 mg/l, respectively, which isn't suitable for drinking, according global standards althought this water can be used for agriculture and aquaculture purposes. Heavy metal contents in sediments were also found to be within the tolerance ranges for aquatic animals. Mean of heavy metal contents in Crayfish's muscle, were 45.73, 2.44, 3.27, 3.40, 184.20, 145.12 and 9.66 for Cu, Pb, Cd, Cr, Zn, Ba and Fe respectively (mg/kg dry weight) that is less than range of sanitary standards for human consumption. There were significant and direct correlations between observed heavy metal contents in water, sediments and Crayfish's muscle, in Abbasay river.
