|Abstract:||The 96 h LC50 value of copper and zinc was 8ppm and 12ppm respectively for <i>Clibanarius longitarsus</i><b>. </b>Based on the LC50 value, three sublethal concentrations were chosen for individual exposure in each metal. Pattern of accumulation of heavy metals in the tissues of <i style="">C. longitarsus</i> noticed in the laboratory was similar to what was observed in the environment: hepatopancreas > ovary > muscle (exposed to both the metals–copper and zinc). Further, increased uptake of metals by tissues was recorded with increase in the test concentrations.|
