Cd and Cu values in each tissue (Gill, muscle and liver) were determined by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The total protein amounts of liver were analyzed by Lowry metod. The total protein levels of liver tissue increased with increasing Cu doses, while effect of Cd was determined with higher doses. The highest protein level was determined as 0,5-0,5 ppm in Cu-Cd interaction.
