In this study, 34 different elements, including toxic and non-toxic heavy metals in the liver, muscle, gonad, kidney and skin of the Alosa braschnikowi were investigated. also, the relationship between aggregation of these elements with growth parameters (age and length) and physiological indices (Condition Factor, relative weight and Hepatosomatic index) were investigated. Some 74 specimens of fish were caught during fishing season (2017-2018) were prepared from three stations Astara, Anzali and Kiashahr on the south-west coastlines of the Caspian Sea. trace elements detection was performed by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-OES). The difference between the tissues was significant in terms of concentration of metals, so that the maximum mean of chromium, molybdenum and Strontium metals in muscle, aluminum, arsenic, barium, manganese, vanadium and nickel in skin, cadmium, cobalt, lithium and lead in the kidney, copper and iron were found in liver and zinc metal in gonad tissue. In all five tissues of muscle, skin, kidney, liver and gonad, the highest concentrations of metals were iron and the lowest concentrations of metals were barium, nickel and cadmium. Investigation of the association of metals concentration in tissues with growth parameters (length and age) showed that there is a significant positive correlation between arsenic, cadmium, cobalt, chromium, copper, iron, manganese, Strontium and zinc metals with the growth parameters, and the strongest positive relationship and significant between copper with age (p<0.05, r = 0.40). also, there was a positive correlation between arsenic, iron, aluminum, barium, chromium, copper, lithium, molybdenum, manganese, nickel, lead and strontium with the physiological indices, which had the strongest positive and significant relation between lithium metal and liver index (p<0.05, r = 0.57).
