Abstract: 
This study was carried out to evaluate the level of heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Cd, Pb) concentrations in chiton (Chiton Lamyi, Dupuis, 1918) and surface sediments of the intertidal zone in Bushehr province coastal waters. Ten specimens of chiton and three samples of sediment per each station were collected in March 2011 and July 2011 at five stations namely Nayband, Kalat, Rostami, Halileh and Bushehr. The results showed that the pattern of metal concentrations in sediment, soft tissue and shell were Zn>Pb>Cu>Cd, Cu>Zn>Cd>Pb and Zn>Cu>Pb>Cd respectively. There was no significant correlation during both season between metal concentrations in Soft tissue-Shell, Soft tissue-Sediment and Sell-Sediment (p>0/05). This finding indicates that heavy metals concentration in chiton was not only influenced by their concentrations in sediment, and some other factors are involved in metal bioavailability to Chiton lamyi. Metal concentrations in sediments were only above LAL level but lower than the other standard levels of heavy metals. So it seems that the studied stations are clean and not polluted with metal pollutants. Comparing concentration of heavy metals in soft tissue with some of the international standards showed that the concentration of Cu and Cd in soft tissue were above the permissible limits. So chiton may be dangerous for marine animals that feed on it. Chitons might use their shell for sequestration of a part of the up-taken cadmium.
