This article studies the seasonal dynamics of the antioxidant enzymes activities in blood and the content of toxic elements in the muscles of knout goby (Mesogobius batrachocephalus Pallas) from the coastal waters of Sevastopol (the Black Sea). The authors discuss the influence of toxic elements contained in muscles on the activities of antioxidant enzymes in blood of knout goby. The obtained results show that the most sensitive to tissue accumulation of toxic elements are enzymes CAT (0.95, −0.52 < r < −0.97) and GR (0.96, −0.56 < r < −0.93), while Cu, Hg and As have the most toxic effect on the biochemical parameters.
