The aim of this study was to investigate LC50 and toxic effect of Cu 2+ on some defense functions of tropical freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii (including total hemocyte count (THC), hyaline cell count (HCC), and phagocytic activity) as well as survivability of the prawn. The experiments were conducted to determine LC50 and the toxic effect of copper sulphate (Cu 2+ ) on THC, HCC, phagocytic activity % and survival % for 24, 48, 72 and 96 hr exposure. The 24, 48, 72 and 96 hr LC50… Expand
