  • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Concentrations in Clarias gariepinus from
           Oluwa River, Ondo State, Nigeria

    • Abstract: Background and Objective: Petroleum hydrocarbons are one of the major organic pollutants that consist of an extremely complex assemblage of chemicals coming from various sources and their fate on the environment is receiving attention in recent times. This research is designed to determine the concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in Clarias gariepinus, water and sediment of the Oluwa River. Materials and Methods: The concentrations of 16 environmentally significant Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAH, were investigated in the sediment and water samples as well as fish (Clarias gariepinus) from the Oluwa River using standard analytical methods. Results: The result revealed that all the 16 PAH investigated were present in all samples investigated at varying concentrations. The total of 16 PAH (Σ16 PAH) in the fish sample (Clarias gariepinus) was 4.90×10–3 mg kg–1 and that of sediment was 4.242×10–1 mg kg–1 while, that of the water sample from the river was 1.038×10–1 mg L–1. The results followed the order C. gariepinus
