The freshwater fish, Clarias gariepienus fingerlings, were exposed to sublethal concentrations (1.7 and 3.4 mg/L) of cadmium chloride for 12 days. Aspartate aminotransferase (AAT), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and total protein levels were assayed in the gill, brain, and muscle of the fish at regular intervals of 6 and 12(More)
Concentrations of Cu, Mn, Zn, Fe, Cr, and Pb were estimated using ICP-MS in nine commercially important and locally consumed fish species (Sarda orientalis, Scomberomorus commerson, Rastrelliger kanagurta, Sardinella longiceps, Paraplagusia bilineata, Cynoglossus lida, Cynoglossus macrostomus, Lepturacanthus savala, and Siganus javus) collected from coastal(More)
The histopathology of lambda-cyhalothrin, a synthetic pyrethroid pesticide, on the gill, liver, intestine and kidney tissues in fish, mrigal (Cirrhinus mrigala), which is one of Indian major carp species were determined by light microscopy. The fish were experimentally exposed to sub-lethal concentrations (0.3ppb and 0.6ppb) of lambda-cyhalothrin for 10(More)
The histopathological changes of fenvalerate on the gill, kidney, liver and intestine tissues of the Cirrhinus mrigala were determined by light microscopy. The fish were exposed to two sub-lethal concentrations of fenvalerate (1.5-3.0 ppb). The most common gill changes at all concentrations of fenvalerate were epithelial hyperplasia, epithelial necrosis,(More)
Labeo rohita fingerlings were exposed to zinc metal toxicity (5 and 10 ppm) for duration of 5 and 15 days. The histological changes were studied in brain and liver of the treated fish. The brain tissues showed enlarged pyramidal cells with extensive vacoulation while severe necrosis, haemorrhage and degeneration of hepatocytes were witnessed in the liver(More)
The histopathological effects of monocrotophos on the gill, kidney and intestine tissues of the Cirrhinus mrigala were determined by light microscopy. The changes in the gills were characterized by epithelial hyperplasia, aneurysm, epithelial necrosis, desquamation, epithelial lifting, oedema, lamellar fusion and curling of secondary lamellae. Pycnotic(More)
Nanotechnology is an advancing field of research which has revolutionized all industrial needs, such as medical, environmental and other industrial applications. Despite the rapid progress and early acceptance of nanotechnology, the potential for adverse health effects due to prolonged exposure at various concentration levels in humans and the environment(More)
The present study investigated the effect of increasing temperature stress on the thermotolerance of B. mori cross-breed PM x CSR2 and tissue specific differential expression of heat shock proteins at IVth and Vth instars. The larvae reared at 25 +/-1 degrees C and 70 +/- 5% relative humidity were treated as control. Larvae were subjected to heat shock(More)
Scolopsis igcarensis, a new species of monocle bream (family Nemipteridae) from the coastal waters of southern India and Sri Lanka is described. The species is distinguished from other species of the genus Scolopsis by a combination of the following characters: scales on top of head reaching forward to between anterior nostril and snout tip; lower margin of(More)
