Abstract

EFFECT OF CHROMIUM ON THE GILL AND LIVER OF FRESH WATER SOUTH INDIAN FISH LABEO ROHITA

*Abdul Wahid Shah

ABSTRACT

The toxic effect of chromium on the histology of gill and liver of Labeo rohita fingerlings was studied. The fingerlings were exposed for 10 and 20 days in 10% sub lethal concentration of 96 h LC50 of chromium (3.5 ppm). The gills exposed to sub lethal concentration of chromium showed mild histological alterations during 10 days of exposure. However after 20 days, fusion of gill lamellae, hypertrophy and degeneration of epithelium were prominent. Liver lesions consisted of vacuolation, degeneration of hepatocytes and disintegration of cell boundaries of hepatocytes. These changes occurred predominantly in the 20 days exposure.

Keywords: chromium, gill lamellae, hypertrophy, hepatocytes.
