In recent years, heavy metals pollution has become one of the most serious environmental problems. With rapid development of many industries, wastes containing heavy metals are directly or indirectly being discharged into the environment. Biosorption is a cost effective excellent tool for removing heavy metals from the waste water (effluent). In this study, waste fish scale, inexpensive biowaste offers potential for the removal of metal ions by biosorption. In this work the potential of fish scales as a suitable biosorbent for removal of Cu, Mn, Zn & Fe ions from aqueous solutions was investigated by various parameter. The influence of that parameter on adsorption was investigated. Various parameters, such as pH, amount of adsorbate, contact time; LOD & LOQ etc. were used for study of the biosorption of metal ions onto waste fish scales. It was observed that at particular value, each variable parameter exhibited the best adsorption result of Cu, Mn, Zn & Fe onto fish scales. In addition to this, the parameters such as recovery, % adsorption were also determined. The biosorption of metal ions on waste fish scale were found to be a cost effective, sensitive easy method.
