ABSTRACT
Background and aims: Metals are important contaminations in aquatic ecosystems. Aquatic organisms such as fishes can used as an indicator of environment as a part of trophic levels due to absorb and accumulate of metals. Due to increase of Caspian Sea pollutions, in this study Caspian shad and Caspian tyulka were used as an indicator of Caspian Sea coast pollution. Also human health risk was determined. 
Materials & Methods: Fish specimens gain from southern coast of Caspian Sea in the Babolsar in 2013. Concentrations of selenium and vanadium were detected by atomic spectrophotometer. Human health risk was assessed by Target Hazard Quotients model (THQ). 
Results: Concentration of selenium significantly differ between skin and muscle in Aloza (p < 0.05). Interspecific concentration of vanadium in skin showed significantly difference (p < 0.05). Concentrations of selenium and vanadium between skin and muscle tissue were significantly difference (p < 0.05). THQ and total THQ were lower than one, that this issue can show no risk with current rate consumption rate for consumer in these regions. 
Conclusion: It seems, selenium and vanadium concentrations haven’t any health problem. Results of this study can use in continues monitoring of Caspian Sea.
Keywords: Caspian tyulka, Caspian shad, Caspian Sea, selenium, vanadium
