Fish are among the organisms that have the ability to bioaccumulate these metals. The aim of this study was to investigate the concentrations of aluminum, vanadium, tin and chromium in the muscle tissue of tapeworm and assess its potential risk. For this purpose, 30 pieces of fish were caught in July 2017 from Bushehr port, Persian Gulf. Samples were prepared according to standard laboratory methods and the concentration of heavy metals was measured using ICP-OES. The concentration of elements in the muscle tissue of fish for human consumption was compared with international standards, as well as the estimated daily, weekly absorption in children and adults, their permissible consumption and risk indicators of consumption of this fish against carcinogenic diseases. The results showed that the mean concentrations of aluminum (23.9 ±10.3), vanadium (0.15 ±0.07), tin (5.41 ±2.2) and chromium (0.34 ±0.12), based on micrograms per gram, fresh weight was observed in muscle tissue.  The absorption of the studied metals in the muscle tissue of fish was Al> Sn> Cr> V. The results showed that the permissible consumption of heavy metals with the exception of aluminum was lower than the standard of the World Health Organization. The calculation of the risk index showed that aluminum in both groups of adults and children and chromium in children have values ​​of more than one, in this regard, with continuous monitoring of heavy metal surfaces in fish offered in the market
