English Abstract

This paper has been conducted to assess the concentrations of radioactive namely K40 Ra226, and Th232 in sediment, and Fish using using a higher purity germanium spectrophotometer in ten of the most common sediments samples were collected from the edge and bottom of the site in Baghdad city and there in Tiger river during 2015-2016 .The results obtained of sedament sample showed that the the concentration of ??40 ranged from 276.19 to 467.23 Bq/kg at ??5and ??3 with an average 399.315Bq/kg, the concentration of????226 is ranging from 19.22 to 72.56 Bq/kg in in ??5and ??3 sample with average 48.357 Bq/kg and the concentration for ??ℎ232 are 18.63 to 29.23 (Bq/kg) at??4and ??5 with average is 24.962.

On the other hand, the radioactive concentration at depth 35 cm show that 185.64-390.81Bq/kg for ??40 isotope at ??? 5 -??? 10 samples, while 11.12- 64.36 Bq/kg for ????226 at ??? 5 -??? 3 samples and 10.25 - 21.21Bq/kg for ??ℎ232, at ??? 4 -??? 5 samples.These confirm that that never affected on the integrity of the environment and fisheries at Baghdad province, its indication a certain degree of bio-accumulation.

That’s refers to conditions will help the fish to withstand sudden changes if available oxygen generators .

The results of radioactive concentration showed that the concentration at edge upper than concentration at depth 35 cm of sediment samples .

This confirms that sediments samples are never affected on the environment and human healthy at this time
