The goal of the study was to investigate the effect of nickel, chromium and its mixtures on biochemical contents of muscle tissues of Cirrhinus mrigala fingerlings by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. FT-IR spectra revealed significant differences in absorbance intensities between control and metal toxicity in muscle tissues, reflecting a change in protein contents due to heavy metals nickel, chromium and its mixtures. Further the bioaccumulation of heavy metals shows that the influence of one metal on another may exhibit a synergism effect.
