Leachate collection tub on environmentally protective facility of Ganet lanfills is leak. It causing leachate seepage and contaminating around of fishpond in Ganet landfills with heavy metals such as Pb, Cu, and Zn. This heavy metals acumulation will causing health problems for aquatic biota. This study result is to knowing the influences of boiling process on decreasing level of Zinc contained in catfish. This is a pre- experiment study using One Group Pretest and Postest research design. This study using Purposive Sampling as sampling methods. Sampling point is taken in two area thats is nearest point and farthest point from source of pollution. Analysis of heavy metals content on catfish is using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS).There are 104,75 mg/kg Zn content in catfish from nearest point (50 m) before boiling process. This amount is exceed from allowed standard from Direktorat Jenderal Pengawasan Obat dan Makanan Number : 03725/B /SK/VII/89 which only allowed 100 mg/kg. After boiling proces, the level of Zn content is decrease into1,14 mg/l (45,75%.). The result of farthest point is known not exceed from allowed standards. This heavy metals different test conclusion showing there is a sygnificant differences of content of Zn in catfish with boiling process and catfish without boiling process.Catfish from pondfish is safe for consumption afer boiling process.
