■Abstract: Oceans and coastal regions worldwide, including Indian Ocean are coming under increasing environmental pressures, one of which are from land-based and marine pollution. Within the countries of Indian Ocean rim, maintaining the integrity of the regional environment is one of the most important common interests. Monitoring and managing the environmental impacts of human activity on the ocean is essential to the maintenance of the living resources of the ocean. In this context, the knowledge of levels and patterns of contaminants is necessary to understand the risk for organisms, including humans, and it is very important for evaluating the global environmental health. However, there is still data gap on toxic pollution within the region of Indian Ocean. In particular, there is no data available on the occurrence of toxic pollutants in eastern Indian Ocean within Indonesian boundary. This presentation will overview current data on the occurrence of toxic pollutants in fish from Eastern Indian Ocean of Southern Java Waters, Indonesia with special reference to trace elements, persistent organic pollutants and radionuclides.
