Commodities of fresh water fish consumption which is generally marketed in BandungIndonesia and surrounding areas are carp, tilapia and catfish. These types of fish are from post-harvesfish farming in Floating Fish Net (FFN) in Cirata Dam. This study aimed to evaluate the accumulationrate of heavy metals Cd, Zn, Pb and Hg contained in fish meat in Cirata Dam namely common carp(Cyprinus carpio L.), Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus L.) and striped catfish (Pangasianodonhypophthalmus). The method used in this research was survey method. Heavy metal tests wereconducted by using AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectrometry). The results showed that heavy metalswere detected in fish meat (C. carpio, O. niloticus and P. hypophthalmus) which cultured in Cirata FFN were Pb and Zn whereas Cd and Hg were found to be negative. Pb that were containing in fish meatranged from 2.0318 to 3.1553 ppm. This range exceeds the allowance standard quality (2 ppm) of theFood and Drug Administration of Republic Indonesia (FDA RI). The contamination of Zn found in fishmeat was observed ranged from 7.3985 to 10.4972 ppm which is within the limits that do not exceedthe standard quality (40 ppm) of the FDA RI.
