Pollution of heavy metals in the aquatic environment is an issue currently paid more attention to because of its toxicity to humans and ecosystems. Heavy metal pollution is able to be highly accumulated and difficult to remove, and when entering the body with excessive amount, it will be the source of many serious and human life-threatening diseases. This study presents the results on the accumulation of the heavy metal Cd of oysters (Crassostrea gegas Thunberg) and species of green Mussel (Perna viridis Linnaeus) in Vung Thung, Danang city from January 2011 to November 2011. Results of the study have evaluated the accumulation of Cd in sediments from 0.54 to 1.54 µg/g, Cd accumulation in Oysters fluctuating from 0.57 to 0.95 µg/g and in species of mussels green from 0.34 to 0.35 µg/g (wet).
