The aim of this study was to assess the potential hazards of abamectin and to identify the toxicity of abamectin on tilapia fish. The fishes were exposed to abamectin (274.4 mg/20 L) for 96 hours. At the end of exposure period, fishes were sacrificed and liver, and gills were removed for estimation of reduced Glutathione (GSH), similarly liver, gills and brain were also analysed for protein content. The level of GSH in liver the fish grown in the control group was (1658 nmole GSH/g tissue), but decreased in treated group (1135 nmole GSH/g tissue). Notably, gills reduced glutathione content was lower than liver in both the control and treated group, (449 nmole GSH/g tissue and 235 nmole GSH/g tissue). The control group shows the protein content in liver was 17 μg/100mg of tissues in gills 12.67 μg/100mg of tissues and brain 18.33 μg/100mg of tissues, the protein content decreased in treated liver to 12.33 μg/100mg, gills 8.4 μg/100mg and brain 14.8 μg/100mg in compared with control group. The results showed decreased value of GSH and protein content in all the tissues when compared to control.Pages: 280-284 | 128 Views 20 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
