Abstract: Arsenic content was estimated in water, plankton and sediments in the region between 14°40'N and 15°50'N surrounding Goa coast. Of the total arsenic content in water (1.65 - 4.78 µg/litre; av. 3.09 µg/litre) 61% was found as soluble inorganic arsenic and the rest as organic bound arsenic. Plankton and sediments also showed marked accumulation of this element, the average being 2.2 and 8.8 µg/g respectively. Nearshore sediments showed higher values of arsenic indicating the influence of land drainage and industrial effluents.
