ABSTRACT
Seasonal investigation was conducted into the occurrence and extent of potentially toxic heavy metals along the coast of Ghana using marine organisms as bioindicators of pollution. The marine organisms sampled were analysed using Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis coupled with conventional counting system. All the four samples (Dentex macrophthalmus, Sardinella maderensis, Engraulis encrasicolus and Cymbium cymbium) recorded detectable levels of potentially toxic elements which fluctuates between
