Chemical and microbiological contaminants in inland and seawater may be a hazard vehicle for
transport of such as Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heavy metal and also pathogenic bacteria strains
from aquatic environment to aquatic food products. The level of PAHs in inland and seawater increase with
industrialization and the traffic density. The contaminants are stored in particularly fatty tissue of raw fish, this
case may affect human health with time. Heavy metal, pesticide so on are the other main chemical contaminants,
which directly affect seafood quality. Concentration of domestic wastewater and not being enough household
waste recycling centre and sewage treatment plant in the region play a key role for especially inland water
quality. Due to these reasons, the microbial contamination risk like coliform bacteria could increase in these
locations. Furthermore, water sources obtained from these regions are used for cleaning, washing and making ice
in the fishing vessel and also unhygienic food processing locations. These undesired applications can affect
directly public health by the reasons such as total mesophilic, psychrophilic bacteria growth and existence of
pathogenic bacteria in fish flesh, so all above mentioned conditions must be monitored and taken under control
for protecting public health.
In this respect, the primary aim of the study was to remark the relationship between aquatic food product and
water quality in inlands and seawater.
