Cleaner coastal areas are very important for the life of marine biota. The aim of this study was to determine the concentrations of heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and mercury in marine water. This research was conducted in July 2018 in Bomo coastal water consisting of nine sites facing the coast to the sea. Heavy metals were analyzed using AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry). The result showed that there was no significant difference between Pb, Cd, and Hg concentrations at all sites (p>0,05). Furthermore, in general, concentrations of all heavy metal shave exceeded the quality standards for marine biota.
