Abstract: The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are pollutants of concern due to their persistence in the marine ecosystem. The aim of the research was to analyse concentration of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the sediments and milkfish (Chanos chanos, Forsk) at Marunda and Blanakan ponds.The PAHs fraction were analysed using GC-MS model Shimadzu QP5000.The results revealed that PAH detected in the surface sediments of Marunda and Blanakan Ponds, were Naphthalene, Benzo (b) fluoranthene, Benzo (k) fluoranthene, Benzo (a) pyrene and Indeno (1,2,3-cd) pyrenewith the range concentrations were 27.1~63.0 ng/g and 24.0~64.9 ng/g. Total PAH concentration observed in the meat and gills of Chanos chanos at Marunda ponds were 13.3 ng/g and 0.4 ng/g, respectively, while in Blanakan ponds, PAH were not detected. PAHs were detected in Marunda and Blanakan indicates input source petrogenic and pyrogenic both sediment, meat, and gills of Chanos chanos, Forskal.
