Author(s): Nirmal Singh Sengar, Lata Bhattacharya, Ankita Soni and Alok Kumar Soni

Abstract: The present study was carried out to evaluate the sub lethal effect of cadmium chloride in the ovaries of Heteropnuestes fossils fish and protective effect of Mulethi herb. The Fishes were divided in to three group, first as a control, second group was cadmium treated group in which fishes exposed to 0.1 ppm concentration of cadmium chloride (cdcl2) in water for 7, 14 and 21 days. Third group were exposed with cdcl2 and treated with Mulethi extract mixed with fish food pellet. We observed cadmium toxicity in fish reflecting by gonadosomatic index (GSI) and histological alteration. Cadmium exposure caused enlarged oocytes, degeneration of outer layer of oocytes also ruptured ovarian follicle and increased interafollicular space. Moreover herbal treatment of Mulethi extract was able to recover and improve these alterations and protect fish from cadmium toxicity.
