Exposure to heavy metals and organic pollutants in natural water bodies can have detrimental effects on fish health. A combination of biochemical and energy studies were used to observe the changes in fish liver mitochondria in response to environmental pollutant induced nitrative stress in natural field conditions. The fish samples Mugil cephalus were collected from polluted (Ennore) and unpolluted (Kovalam) estuaries for a period of two years. The results revealed elevated nitrite (NO2-) and… CONTINUE READING
