The distribution and accumulation of heavy metals were studied in the "water − suspended matter − bottom sediments − fishes" system of the Amur River. The use of the geochemical method of the study of Cu, Zn, Pb, and Cd in bottom sediments, suspended matter, and water makes it possible to conclude that these metals enter the waters of the Amur River with natural sources. The study of seasonal dynamics of heavy metals accumulation has shown that the maximal changes in the concentration of zinc, copper, and lead in the aquatic environment were observed during the period of spring flood and in summer at the lowest water level. Analysis of some species of fishes occurring in the Amur River has shown that the content of heavy metals (Cu, Zn, Pb, and Cd) in the muscles of fishes was not higher than their limiting permissible concentration in food.
