Analysis on effects of hostathion on selected metabolic and heaematological parameters of an air breathing fish


Author(s): Dr. Kaushlendra Kumar

Abstract: The present study was an attempt to compare the toxicity between a heavy metal (copper) and a pesticide (®Hostathion) on the behavioural as well as metabolic and haematological parameters of the fish Calarias Batrachus. Results clearly show that pesticides have an adverse effect on the living biota in aquatic environments. Hence it is highly imperative that we should resort to biopesticides. In this paper conducted to compare the effects of the heavy metal copper and the pesticide ®Hostathion on the behavioural and physiological activities of the Air Breathing fish, Calarias Batrachus and thereby to study the impact of the same on this fish population.
