Vanadium toxicity to fish Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch)


Author(s): Ajaya Bikkini and Prasanta Nanda

Abstract: Vanadium toxicity to fish Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch) was studied for a period of two weeks. When the fishes were exposed to 1, 4 and 7 ppm of Vanadium (NaVO3), the biochemical parameter like glucose increased significantly (p<0.001) from the control value in different tissues. Whereas the protein content in tissues like liver, muscle and kidney decreased significantly (p<0.001) from the control. The LC50 value was found to be 13.2 ppm.
