Abstract: Studies on environmental parameters in seawater and heavy metals content in meats of wedge clam, Donax faba (Family: Donacidae) were carried out. Mn and Zn concentrations from Panambur were higher than that of Padukere. These two heavy metals were very high in D. faba when compared to earlier studies from other different geographical regions. Significant variability in the environmental parameters and heavy metals was observed in both the wedge clam beds off Panambur and Padukere. Within the seasons, spatial trends were most evident during June-August. This change was largely brought about by the changes in environmental parameters and heavy metals in monsoon season. At Panambur, the seasonal pattern based on environmental variables and metals was to some extent consistent with the three seasons with the exception of few months which are transition months appeared in different clusters.
