The present study was undertaken to assess the toxicity of sublethal concentrations (0.015, 0.030 and 0.045 ppm) of cypermethrin on the gills, scales and erythrocytes of Anabas testudineus for 21 days. The morphological changes on the gills, scales and erythrocytes of the A. testudineus were observed using scanning electron microscope (SEM). The SEM studies on all the three treated groups revealed several kinds of gills, scales and erythrocytes alterations and modifications with abnormal… CONTINUE READING
