Pharmaceticals are considered as emerging pollutants of particular concern due to their continuous release into the environment and the potential impact on aquatic organisms. We performed a screening in the wastewater of the WWTP Sevnica in three samplings: March, June and December 2015. We detected more than 30% of the monitored pharmaceuticals in different concentration range. Tramadol was present in the effluent at concentration above 1 µg/L, both in June and December 2015. The main goal was to develop a simple method for the extraction of selected from fish tissue. The results showed presence of tramadol and carbamazepine in some tissue, but the concentrations were below the limit of quantification.
