Thiram a fungicide induced toxicity on glycogen and blood glucose level of freshwater fish Cyprinus carpio (Hamilton)


Author(s): Nageswara Rao Naik R, Srinivasa Naik B and Jagadish Naik M

Abstract: The present study was investigated on Freshwater fish, Cyprinus carpio exposed with technical grade di-thiocarbamate a fungicide, Thiram for 96h and the LC50 value were determined at 0.66 mg/l. One–tenth of LC50 was selected a sub-lethal dose for studies on liver, muscle glycogen and blood glucose levels for a period of 1, 7, 15 and 30th days. The present study revealed that, the LC50 value gradually decreased with the increase of exposure period and the mortality rate increased with increase in concentration with fungicide exposure and the depletion of glycogen levels in liver, muscle and elevation of blood glucose levels were observed.
