The effects of aluminum and acid on the gill morphology in rainbow trout, Salmo gairdneii

Abstract

The objective was to determine the effects of acid and aluminum in acidified hard and soft water on the histology and morphometry of rainbow trout gills, and to determine relevant toxicity indicators within the gill tissue. Acid and aluminum promoted measurable primary epithelial hyperplasia which proved to be a reliable biological indicator of acid and… (More)
