The objective of this research to calculate the concentration levels of Pb, Cd and Hg from the area of Kartini beach. These metal are very toxic for human and aquatic organism. This study was conducted in April 2015. The survey method used in this study. Presence of heavy metals than can be killed directly at very high concentrations, especially larval period, heavy metals can also be accumulated by aquatic organisms even in low concentrations in the water column. Accumulation of heavy metals in marine ecosystems is of global importance.
